How an Obama Win Would Affect Your Pocketbook

In The Wall Street Journal, June 6, 2008, Benjamin Tobias was quoted in the article How an Obama Win Would Affect Your Pocketbook by Brett Arends.  The article summarized that capital gain rates may increase in 2009 and beyond if Senator Barack Obama wins this year’s Presidential Election.  Ben recommended possibly taking capital gains in 2008 and to pay the 15% tax at that time, because it is uncertain what one will be paying next year.
