Is this true? or are your numbers made up?

No, divedends are now treated as regular earned income. If you are in the top tax bracket you pay 39.6% + 3.8% (new Obamacare surcharge).

Those people obviously sold their dividend stocks (and they own a lot of them) to seek reasonable return elsewhere.

So, when I do my taxes in April (or early next year), my dividends will be taxed as ordinary income?

And if others are seeking reasonable returns elsewhere, where is this "elsewhere" you are speaking of? I haven't found such a place to put my money. I'm getting over 11% in dividends. How and where can I beat that?
