This is possible, but I also see "professional investors" as the Financial Times called them today, selling out of positions before change in tax laws. Page 20 of today's FT has almost a full page item about dividend stocks and taxes and how telecoms and other high yielding stocks have sold off 7% or more. As I mentioned, for those of us who just buy and hold, this presents a very low entry price on a lot of stocks with high dividends. It is pretty much in the bag that those who make less than 250K will not have taxes increased.

On the contrary, everyone's taxes will increase. You may not be subject to higher dividend or cap gains taxes, but other tax increases will affect all earners.
