Oh, I think he would sign it; I just don't believe in the current political environment, it would ever make it to his desk.

OMG talk about CLUELESS



. As much as $800 billion of that could come from a 0.1 percent fee on stock trades, mostly from high-volume transactions, Van Hollen told the Post.


That hits the middle class,, UNIONS with their pensions, and IRAS, AND the medicare capitol gains surtax already cuts in to the income from it.

'Help' the middle class eh ?

What a GD joke.

Increase Capital Gains tax to 95%

Everyone wins.


LOL. Except people who sell their house, or have a retirement fund, or 401K, or a savings account--all "capital gains."

Why ?

So they can arm terrorists with that money ?

SO they can give billions to 'evil' Israel ?

So they can give billions to study cow farts,shrimps on treadmills, and other well know stupidity ?

How about those politicians show some responsiblity for what they spend NOW, before anyone supports letting them take more from ANYONE.

Repair crippled infrastructure.
Universal Healthcare.
Universal Post Secondary Education.
Space Program.
Border Security.
Increased Energy Research.

Flood government with money, and the money of special interests loses it's sweetness. Couple this increase in taxation with increased penalties for government misconduct and we turn around the society in 8 years.

That's wrong.

Interest is Capital Gains, not the principle. Hence the gains in capital gains. I don't think people should make money on their money.

Make money on labor, not money.

Can we just implement a flat tax already?

Or, better yet, no income tax at all?

Other than that, this this whole redistribution-of-wealth crap the dems keep dreaming up would do nothing overall to better the system--it only aids in foggying it up even more.


by every government and economic study, the redistribution of wealth has been coming from the bottom and going to the top.....so if that's what you mean, it's been CRAP for several decades....if I was a master and had slaves, the cost of housing and feeding them would be my "cost" of doing business. if you switched to actually paying them a wage that was above and beyond that meager existence, then that is what your term "redistribution of wealth" would mean.

I don't see how we are going to get to the moon by robbing from the rich to give to NASA when it's core mission has been muslim outreach' for the last 6 years.

You're response would be laughable if your ignorance wasn't so sad.

Don't be so literal. Spiting the Moon is a proverb. It means that you don't want something because your rival or enemy has it, even though it would be beneficial to you.

a bonus of $250 for people who save at least $500 a year


How does the government know that $500 is in savings?

Giving the benefit of the doubt and so assuming that this bill is not just another click toward total information awareness, the resulting unintended consequences of having the most powerful body of people in the known universe, recording all the details of each life, make this Democrat vote buying -- Darwin Award Stupid.

In other words, same ol' same ol.

Maybe from our Income Tax returns? Good question.

You are wrong. You sell your house at a profit. That is capital gains. You put money in a 401K, you pay capital tax on everything you pull out, principle and interest.

You don't think people should make money off their money or their land or their property? How narrowminded of you. Money is often a representative of one's labor. I labor to earn money to invest for income--money IS labor. This fundimental lack of understanding is why I will have a decent retirement account and you will not.

You might want to actually read the tax code before commenting on it.

Ah yes, the 8 year plan. Is this anything like the communist 5 year plan only put in neat two-presidential term units? You know those never worked out, right?

No what is laughable the only way to get to the moon is when the Democrats stop pushing social engineering.

And starts pushing rocket engineering.

Rocket engineering is the only way to get to the moon.
