Majority Of Americans Support Taxing Investment Income The Same As Wage Income

Ruy Teixeira points to a CBC News/New York Times poll showing that a majority of Americans favor taxing investment income the same as wage income. The disparity between the 15 percent top rate for investment income and the 35 percent top rate for wage income is what enables wealthy investors like Warren Buffett to drive their tax rate down to or below the rate at which many middle class families pay.
