Hilzoy notices what everyone is worried about…
I hope Hilzoy doesn’t mind if I steal her post in its entirety, but the last line is too good to pass up.
No sooner did I finish my last post than I found this from Politico:
“As part of a plan to reinvigorate his flagging campaign, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is considering additional economic measures aimed directly at the middle class that are likely to be rolled out this week, campaign officials said.
Among the measures being considered are tax cuts — perhaps temporary — for capital gains and dividends, the officials said.”
Because what everyone is really worried about right now is how they’ll manage to pay the taxes on their massive capital gains.
