Depression 2.019 Jul 2008 / Paul Epps
Mr. Obama is proposing to raise taxes on capital gains and dividends by a staggering two-thirds, moving the rate up 10 percentage points to 25%, which could curtail investment and business on Wall Street, a backbone of the city’s and state’s economy.

In the event of an Obama presidency, I will taking a long position in blankets, canned goods and shotgun shells . . .
