    Ryan knows better. Of course, the capital gains tax is not on the money already earned as income, but on the new gains. And we pay taxes on the same money twice all the time anyway. Hasn't he heard of sales taxes? If he wants to get rid of all sales taxes across the country and replace the money with funds generated by progressive income taxes at every level, so that each of us can only be "taxed once" on what we make, I'm all ears.

    My forthcoming book Obama's America: A Transformative Vision of Our National Identity will be published in Summer 2012 by Potomac Books.
