The whole model needs to be restructured. You have huge companies funneling management fees -- which should be taxed at the top marginal tax rate of 35% -- through their investment funds so that they look like capital gains and thus avoid the regular tax rate.

It has become a massive loophole for the very rich and there should be a real debate about what to do with it going forward.
