So I'm guessing everyone in this thread is against occupy wallstreet movement and supports lower taxes for the rich and powerful while cutting
programs that help the poor/middle class. Because thats what this plan does which the OP leaves out of course. I guess you all want to further widen
the gap between the rich and poor. No wonder Rush Limbaugh is supporting him.
"Paul would also make far-reaching changes to federal tax policy, reducing the top corporate income tax rate to 15 percent, eliminating capital gains
and dividends taxes and allowing for repatriation of overseas capital without tax penalties. All tax cuts enacted under former President George W.
Bush would be extended."
Corporate income tax is pretty self explanatory. Capital gains tax = tax on money made from stocks, bonds etc. Huge tax break for the rich and
powerful who will now be able to transfer even more wealth from the poor to the rich and manipulate and dominate the stock market further. Dividend
tax is an income tax on dividend payments to the stockholders (shareholders) of a company. So same as above.
Corporations, wall street and millionaires/billionaires will love it if Ron Paul gets voted after reading this plan. They will be richer than ever at
the expense of the middle/poor class. The rich and powerful will be even richer and more powerful, while the poor and middle class get even more
screwed, is that really the world you want?
I used to be a Ron Paul fan until reading this plan and realizing hes just another wallstreet sellout, and worse than most his plan helps them more
than any other.
