Please explain capital gains being 0 percent in 2008?

The long term capital gains tax rate for those who are in the 10% or 15% regular income tax brackets will be 0% in 2008. This is a reduction from the current 5% rate. Whether the 0% rate is rescinded after one year may depend on what happens in the 2008 elections.
