I know a lot of people who are. What I can't understand is even though we are no where near well off, we pay more in income tax on our earnings than those who are richer pay on their stock gains. Tax on profits from stocks are a measly 15%-less than a standard tip to a waiter! I hear a lot of talk from the Left on raising taxes on the rich; okay, that's fine with me. Let's start by raising the Capital Gains taxes on stocks. Anyone making over $100,000 a year who owns stocks pays say the same amount on their gains as they pay for their income tax on their wages or business profits. What do you think?
