            ``(2) Net capital gain taken into account as investment 
        income.--For purposes of this subsection, the net capital gain 
        for any taxable year shall be reduced (but not below zero) by

                    ``(A) the amount determined under such first 
                sentence computed at the rates and in the same manner 
                as if this paragraph had not been enacted on the 
                taxable excess reduced by the net capital gain, plus
                    ``(B) 10 percent of the lesser of the net capital 
                gain or the taxable excess.''

                in effect on the day before the date of the enactment
