    from raiding a pension fund -- like Romney and the vulture capitalists were wont to do -- should be taxed at 100%, since the pensioners who were robbed will have to rely on the federal government for less than 60% of what they had before they were raided.  The IRS and Department of Justice can coordinate to determine who did the raiding.  Maybe we should make raiding a company's pension fund for private gain a capital offense.

      pension fund theft a capital crime! (actually, I'm against capital punishment, but I like your humor).
