It's a FACT that the GOP plan is to eliminate the capital gains tax: "Promotes saving by eliminating taxes on interest, capital gains, and dividends; also eliminates the death tax." The elimination of the capital gains tax will save Romney $3 million a year in taxes and lower his tax rate to less than 1%

Where are the jobs? Where's the budget? Where's the plan for the economy? Where's the competence?

Ryan announced tonight on Hannity and Greta's tv show that he proposes to:

"Close alot of Corporate tax loopholes" which has been very much needed for a very long time Now !

And then be able to lower taxes across the board, while increasing revenues.

Those massive-increases in revenue-$$ will be from the upper-income-% who own the big Banks, Corporations, businesses.

There's no way he's going to be able to lower Capital-Gains Taxes below 15% !

He's not perfect but he's decent for a politician !

Capital gains yearly income should be taxed at a higher rate if your overall yearly income reaches a pre-determined higher amount.

But should not go above the top rate for regular income, such as 35% !

Except it is about you, Rep. Akin. Akin told NBC this morning that Paul Ryan called him yesterday and urged him to drop out of the Missouri Senate race. Akin is continuing his argument that his decision to stay in the race (the deadline to drop out was yesterday at 5 pm cst) that this isn't about him but about standing on principle. The problem is, the focus isn't on principle, it's on Akin's refusal to drop out like nearly the entire conservative movement and Republicans have asked.
