.Biden's planned capital-gains tax hike may put immediate selling pressure on stocks given what's happened in markets after previous rate increases, according to Goldman Sachs.A team of Goldman analysts led by Arjun Menon wrote on Friday that Joe Biden's proposed changes to the corporate tax code would be complemented by an increase in the tax rate applied to capital gains and dividends for the highest income individuals.
History has shown that capital-gains tax hikes spark stock sell-offs. After the last capital-gains tax rate increase in 2013, the wealthiest 1% of households sold 1% of their starting equity and mutual fund assets, worth about $100 billion today, in the three months leading up to the rate hike, according to Goldman.

The high-stakes confirmation hearing for Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, is underway Monday in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Then he will go after your vehicle that you have worked hard to pay for. Taxing anyone for 40% for anything is insanity.
'However, those individuals who sold quickly bought back stocks only a few months later' Seems like Goldman Sachs should be guiding folks to not get emotional and hold onto stocks. 🔥 Check It Out 🔥 Probably not the best tax to increase. A 1% sales tax increase could offset this instead. good boy

Is anything keeping the Biden campaign awake at night?“The intent in the [Biden] campaign is to not worry so much about what could happen, but what they are going to do each and everyday,” mikebarnicle says. “And that’s run like an underdog.” mikebarnicle No, because the lib media has his back and is actively suppressing coverage of Biden’s lies and crimes Morning_Joe mikebarnicle I believe the Clintons are just a tiny bit more corrupt than the Bidens. But it's a close call. The jury is still out.

Where Trump and Biden Stand on Financial Regulation Joe Biden was vice president when Barack Obama signed the Dodd-Frank financial regulation act in 2010. In a second term, Trump would continue efforts to ease its restrictions. Biden would likely build on it. YES LETS GET BACK TO OBAMA ERA OPEN BORDER / 9 TRILLION DEBT / BAD TRADE / CLOSING FACTORIES / OPIOD EPIDEMIC AND WAR ON COPS. Good! Knee jerk politicians. They make laws after the fact. Which then ruins everyone going forward.
