The other new tax is on "unearned" income! Get that, taxed on money you haven't even made yet. First time in history. Yep, that's the change we can believe in.

Er, no, "unearned" income refers to various types of non-wage/salary income, such as dividends and cap gains. It is NOT "money you haven't even made yet".

Look, you can criticize the tax policies all you want, but it generally helps your argument to have a vaguely correct understanding of what you're talking about.
