However true that is, there is a more general point being made, which is that the gap between the top xx% and others is growing now and has been growing ever more rapidly, essentially since Reagan. And one of the ways that grows is through the stock market and the preferred tax treatment of capital gains. It can't be a good thing. We are turning the country in a version of 18th-19th century Russia and much of Europe. Over time and generations, that creates terrible stresses in any society and is very dangerous. We should not allow it. But of course this tax plan that is being proposed will lead to an even wider gap.
