I could not open the links that you supplied from work (actually they just about shut down my computer trying to open them) but I am going to guess that they point out that due to the lower rates on capital gains these millionaires end up paying lower tax rates overall than those whose $$ just comes from ordinary income. While the math on this may be completely true it is disingenuous to use this as a reason to increase taxes on the “rich”. I firmly believe that capital gains should be taxed at a lower rate than ordinary income. Think about it.
What would happen if the IRS raised the capital gains tax to the same 35% rate as ordinary income?
