Without going and looking it up, I heard that when Eisenhower was president, the tax rate on the super rich was 90%. It was 80% for most of the eighties. When Reagan was president, it was 70 or 75%. During all that time, we had unpresented growth. Now, you listen to Warren Buffet with his tens of billions. He said his tax rate is 17% and his secretaries is 30%. He said he could pay much less if he used "loopholes" that aren't available to his secretary. Republicans keep saying that taxes are why the economy sucks and we need to cut even more. It seems to me that it's the tax cuts that are hurting the economy. Has this been seriously studied? Are we just following Republican propaganda? All the tax cuts, where are the jobs? Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome. Is that where we are now?
