I hardly call Goldman Sachs trading synthetic swaps as having anything to do with "investment capital".

Why pick the most inane example to illustrate your point?

How about the proverbial little ole lady that has AT&T stock from her husband that worked for the company for years. Do we really want to raise taxes on her dividend income? It is not just the so-called Wall Street bankers that get a portion of their income from dividends.
