Hi Dan, I really respect your work. I think maybe you missed one opportunity here - when he claimed that the vast majority of income is pass-through income not dividends and capital gains, you might point out that President Obama has not put anyone in that situation on stage with him to protest that their taxes are too low. Why is that? Because the people he cites as examples do get the majority of their income through dividends and capital gains. It is not a coincidence that he focuses on one set of "millionaires" as evidence of the problem then his spokesperson acknowledges that it is irrelevant to the vast majority of "millionaires". Can he name some small business owners that make millions and pay less than their secretaries?
