Heck they did pass the Bush Tax cuts - except for those couples who make over $450,000.
Of course as far as the first $450,000 income is concerned for those who make more than that cap - they get the benefit up to that level.

They made it permanent not renewable - that is important to me.

I remember 20 % cap gains taxes and on dividends - it was at the same time we had a powerful bull market 1999-2000.

I've not made that kind of market money since.

Now to strangle entitlement control day by day and we'll have avery good market IMO.
Note to file I'm a staunch conservative and a long time Young Republican so that's my spin on it.

Strangely it seems the Dems guard capital gains at low taxation rates and boost cap gains when benefactors have to pay more.Perhaps just my paranoia.LOL
