WOW! AWESOME ROMNEY WOULD NOT TAX CAPITAL GAINS AND INVESTMENT INCOME
Romney has made it clear that if he wins, he'll get rid of Bernanke. And if he got rid of Bernanke, there would be few gains or investment income. BERNANKE is the one who has been responsible for this fabulous stock market - he's much more important in that regard than who occupies the Oval Office. The occupant of the White House still needs Congress to approve his programs while Benanke is able to simply do what he wants to do.
bernanke is a student of the Great Depression and he knows full.well what happened in 1938 when FDR thought the U.S. was out of the woods and the fed Chairman at the time allowed interest rates to soar in that still-fragile economy.
Obama isn't exactly my cup of tea; in fact I think that he is one of the worst presidents in U.S. history. Still, he's going to get my vote this year because continued super-low interest rates with Bernanke in there trumps virtually everything else. I'm so much better off now than four years ago it isn't funny and I know full well who was responsible (other than my utilization of superior options methods of course).
Being a student of the Great Depression and LIVING it are two different things. I lived it, and I can tell you that the only thing that moved us out of the depression was WWII. For you youngsters in the crowd.....that means World War Two....not Eleven. I say throw Bernanke out with Obama!
