You are missing the point. This is how a lot of CEOs and businessmen of large corporations make their money. They pay themselves a minute yearly salary, but make up for it with capital gains assets which are taxed at a much lower rate than what they would have been had those figures come from a wage subject to a higher federal income tax bracket. Enough is enough with that crap.
