Hubbs Posted December 3, 2011 Share Posted December 3, 2011 I think that we strongly disagree on your second point. Far as I'm concerned, the only reason why capital gains income (or dividends, or any other form of income) is taxed any differently from any other income, is class warfare. Ooookay... never mind that I've repeatedly gone out of my way to say that I'd raise income taxes on the top brackets. You're right, it's part of my clever scheme to support the rich at all costs. Somehow, my scheme involves super-low capital gains taxes, despite the fact that this was literally the thing I said directly before my second point: The fairest way to determine who that "somebody" is is to focus all taxes on personal income (while taking into consideration capital gains). Just observing that, as far as I'm aware, the argument about taxation on corporate jets is about whether the tax code should encourage them. What the D proposal would have done was to treat them like other corporate assets. That might be an argument other people are having, but it has nothing to do with anything I've said.
