Earned capital income should carry the regular dividend rate, but capital income gains by trading, and particularly short-term trading, should pay a higher tax, even than the present ordinary income rate.

So he wants to further suppress investment capital, further depressing the business environment and economy. Again, another fine example of someone with good/great investment smarts but dumb as a rock on tax issues. Almost as bad as listening to an actor/singer on issues other than acting/singing.

IMHO, flat tax for everything.
