    Regarding Romney's trial balloon about limiting deductions

    That he is willing to consider a measure that would raise his tax liability a huge amount says a lot about his character.

    It says he is a clever shyster. I cannot believe how naive and stupid you are. He is simply proposing something he knows would never, ever get passed into law for purely political gain. Now, if he had proposed that long-term Capital Gains be taxed as ordinary income, I would be impressed. But to say he is willing to consider something which has a snowball's chance in Heck to pass is disingenuous at best.

    Any you are an idiot for not being about to see through it.

    Which, by the way, please explain why earnings that are achieved by working on a job should carry a higher tax rate than earnings received by sitting on your butt and letting an investment grow through other peoples' efforts? Why penalize the person whose income comes from actual work?

    • Similar revision of the tax law took place during the Reagan administration. So much for such legislation not getting passed. If you want an explanation concerning the variance in tax rates, you need to take that up with your representative in Congress. Your personal remark is indicative of your lack of ability to put forth a convincing argument.

      Sentiment: Buy
