FactCheck.org Summary:  “Actually, her tax plan would reduce the marginal income tax rates for middle-income families – married couples earning roughly between $70,700 and $142,700 – while keeping the current rates the same for everyone else… McMahon also proposes eliminating the capital gains tax for those same taxpayers and others who earn less than that, while keeping the Bush-era capital gains tax rate and dividend tax rate at the current level of 15 percent for taxpayers subject to the top three tax brackets.”
