    Special tax treatment for dividends remains.  The capital gains rate vis-a-vis wage taxes remaims lower than it was when Bush came in.  And the government will remain deprived of sufficient revenue to meet its obligations.  "Starve the beast" is still with us.

      direction, instead of being abolished as each of the ridiculous GOP plans have had, and the ACA tacked on some extra tax, so it has gone up several points, which is good.

      There are more and better policies we need to fight for, but one should never dismiss progress, even if it is clawing back from the brink.  Big gains are generally built out of lots of small gains.
