    The Affordable Care Act IS here. As for the others, talk to your Republican representative about nothing being brought to the floor.
    But I guess if you want to hold President Obama response for everything that goes on (or doesn’t), you should include the failure to repeal ACA forty plus times.

    “The richer you are the less you pay. Even as low as 0%.”

    Try the Treasury Department for detailed numbers of what income brackets pay what taxes.

    “That doesn’t matter if most of your income is Capital Gains.”

    I have no idea where to go with this. It makes no sense.

    “Dow is up 16,000

    Yeah, when the FED keeps printing money like Monopoly Money, that’ll happen. Just wait till it can’t sustain itself any longer with the massive inflation it’s causing…..POP

    As in Capital gains (ex pays in shares, dividends, bonuses so forth) are not taxed at the same level as income from employment or in some cases are not taxed whatsoever.

    Now for those with upper income often dividends, stock options and so forth make up the majority of income, with actual salary representing a small % of total income

    You mean the massive inflation of 2%, I’m sure every financial institution is clearly oblivious. Gee wiz they need better guys to read the news.

    QE has printed 4 trillion over 5 years or 800 billion (out of 16 trillion average ) , now(even considering that a large portion of the money was simply used as a slush fund by major banks) the 4 trillion over 5 years equates to 5% inflation over regular increase in money supply (now between 2000 and 2007 there was a gain of 1/3 gdp, divide 33/7 and you get about 4.7), measure these against each other and the money being printed is about a discrepancy of .3

    Considering that large amounts of USD are still being held offshore there would appear to be trust, compared to Asian markets (average of 8% inflation, India has hit as high at 17% in recent years) 2% is laughable.

    @ Quipss

    I’m aware of what capital gains are and how they’re paid. I’m just have no idea what they have to do with looking up tax brackets at the Treasury site. (Probably should have said IRS)
