Where does your income fall in this range? (don't tell me, it's none of my business). Do you think It is reasonable for someone whose income primarily comes from capital gains has to pay 15% in taxes while some, like most of us on this forum, pay 35% in taxes? Or, do you WANT to pay more?
I personally would not feel bad if some insurance executive that gets 20 million in salary and benefits lost one of his tax loopholes.
