With regard to a House bill that would swap the much-loved 15% tax rate loophole for a staggering 35%, White House flak Tony Snow said Wednesday that Bushie will veto any and all attempts to increases taxes on hedge funds y buyout firms. Snow, never afraid to go where no one else will, noted that “This is not an administration that’s predisposed toward tax increases.” This bill is separate from the one aimed at Blackstone, Fortress, et. al., though similar in nature, and one that Treasury chief Hank Paulson believes would have “unintended consequences on capitalism,” namely that the mind-blowingly rich would have to let some of its hired help go.
