  •  treat the income as GAMBLING INCOME for (5+ / 0-)

    TAX purposes.

    No more of this "capital gains" crap for Wall Street gamblers.  Call it what it is:  casino betting.

    Or, to play Devil's Advocate, someone (Bernie Sanders?) should introduce a bill whereby all gambling income from games of skill (poker etc.) should be taxed as capital gains.  

    Seriously though, capital gains should be taxed as regular income.  The idea that you pay a lower tax for letting your money work for you than for actually working is just disgusting.  It's a kick in the guts against the work ethic.  Enough is enough!
