Thanks for sharing the article Ken.  From everything I read, it is mainly about investors who buy stocks etc.  We CD holders don't seem to be in the category unless you are concerned about the low interest rates and what inflation will cost us.  This has to be an extra concerning time for any in the stock market.  Somehow I can't see a "new" President frying people with such high capital gains rates.  If it is Romney, practically all his taxes are in capital gains from what I have read.  But then again, he has the money to pay those kind of taxes!
