****But doesn't the Republican party pander to millionairea and billionaires who get the majority of their income via capital gains?****
Sadly, the politically uneducated and the misinformed and uninformed and just plain ignorant, don't realize that the "millionaires and billionaires" are the JOB CREATORS. When was the last time you got a job from a poor person? DUH! So if you want them to remain in the U.S. CREATING JOBS, you don't tax them to death, because they're wealthy enough they can just move their companies to China or anywhere else in the world, then there will be ZERO jobs for Americans. Obama has already made sure that we are losing jobs -- outsourcing to other countries. Unfortunately, most don't do their own homework!
