If that's the case, this would be considered a man's job... and similar to a salesman, he will have good months and bad months. Yet the investor pays a significant'y lower tax rate because he's making his money differently.
So I have worked since I was in my early teens. Started saving money on a regular monthly basis since my early 20's and I still have a job and make wages yet I have accumulated savings while other who were in the same position as I didn't. Why should I pay more then someone who didn't save and invest?
You allready are willing to screw me out of the SS and Medicare beni's I paid into just like you now you want to take my savings. Don't get me wrong I'm willing to pay more and understand I will but don't give me your BS argument because it's BS.
