I want to minimize government's fiddling with the market by taxing both at the same rate. You think the gov't should interfere with normal market incentives by raising the tax on one and lowering them on the other.
It seems to me that you are promoting gov't interference, I'm promoting keeping the gov't neutral.
Raising rates on dividends and on capital gains means the government is neutral. Got it.
