You would do your readers a service if you would inform them of the last dozen years of history in which Senator Schumer defended the favorable capital gains tax rate that the hedge fund managers of NYC have enjoyed. The 15% that they pay on billions of dollars when they bet that the US economy would tank on the effects of poor mortgage loans is salt in the wound of the millions of workers in this country who pay a significant portion of their income which is based on their labor. Schumer has functioned as a protector of the high and nightly in finance. I suspect that if Saverin had made a large contribution to the Democratic Senate campaign fund he would not be spoken of so harshly.
