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." http://roadmap.republicans.budget.house.gov/issues/issue/?IssueID=8514 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% http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2012/08/mitt-romney-would-pay-082-percent-in-taxes-under-paul-ryans-plan/261027/

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.
