You are correct, they are not the same. Investment, if anything, should be taxed higher, not lower, than labor income, if we're not going to have an equal rate.
And they just handed Obama a landsilde electoral victory and what he has taken as a mandate.But of course there is a "deserve" in a tax system. Voters vote for many reasons.
I think we could find mcuh to agree upon in this section however.I believe at one point we discussed tax reform previously, and i mentioned my support for the consumption tax, and far less enthusiasm for a "flat tax". This is one of the major reasons i believe a consumption tax is vastly superior than a flat tax. Every issue discussed in this thread magically disappears when a consumption tax system is utilized.
