    WOW Awesome Romeny would not tax dividends

    What are you talking about? With the Romney plan those making less than 200k would pay no tax on investment income. So are you saying those making less than 200K are rich? Romney’s plan would let households earning less than $200,000 a year collect capital gains, dividends and interest tax-free. That would encourage more Americans to build cash nest eggs and to own stocks and bonds above and beyond their retirement plans.

    Obama is going to raise taxes on everyone and every small business you can count on it. Obama is not a numbers guy and does not understand even the most elementary fundamentals of economics as evidenced in last night's debate.

      Romney's plan would mostly give those making up to $200,000 in investment income a 0% tax rate. If you are a trader or investor or just rich enough to pull in $200,000 in dividends or capital gains, with no earned income, you get a 0% tax rate.

      How on earth do you think that helps people who earn money from work or small business profits? If Romney wants to help ME grow a nest egg, cut MY taxes. Don't lower them for the wealthy and get rid of my deductions.

      If you make more that $200,000 in dividends, do you get 0% tax on the first $200,000 as well? Like so many things Romney, he doesn't say. . .
