    all income, regardless of type or source, is taxed equally.

    Tinkering with deductions and loopholes is a farce, and everybody on this site knows it. Unfortunately, Joe Sixpack doesn't.

    Capital gains and dividends are two sides of the same coin. Both are strictly tied to earnings (profits), although in different ways. Taxing them at different rates merely invites the clever to devise new strategies to avoid taxation.
