Seems like you could put a minimum on the holdings before you start taxing, like $10 or $50 mil. So the savings of the teacher or the retail worker are safe.

You can sell 2% of your more-valuable-than-when-you-bought-it stock to pay your taxes if you need to, AND you can sell it instantly. Both of those are hard to do with a house. Stupid analogy.
