For example, currently, dividends are taxed at 15% instead of at regular income tax rates. You think that's great news, so you load up on dividend paying stocks. Well, one day, as fast as it came, the tax laws get changed again and now the dividends are taxed much higher (maybe income tax rates, maybe some other arbitrary number). Here you are, with lots of dividend paying stocks...

What do you do?
