The prize for today’s most unsurprising headline goes to “Romney’s tax plan really does favor the rich,” by Roberton Williams in The Christian Science Monitor.
We know that Mitt has been running around saying that he wants to eliminate taxes on capital gains and dividends for households making less than $200,000. So this sounds like a way to help families that aren’t super rich.
Except, according to this article, that the $200,000 threshold applies only to ordinary income, not to income from capital gains and dividends. And who has $200,000 or more in annual capital gains and dividend income rather than salary or wages? Very, very rich people.
So once again the deck is stacked against those who work for a living.
If Mitt is being deceptive now, does anyone think he’ll be honest once he’s sitting in the Oval Office?
