How much of the top 0.1% income is traditional though?

A huge portion of their income is capitol gains, so many pay the same or lower effective tax rate than you or I.

Agreed that stock increases can help out regular people too, but less than half of Americans actually own any stock and many that do only have a tiny fraction of their income (if any) is through capitol gains.
