The Dems are screaming that tax increases are needed. I want to know why and how much The Bush tax cuts are increasing revenue to the government. The cuts took the US out of the Clinton recession. The annual budget deficit is shrinking, the economy is growing, and it all because of the Bush tax cuts Do Dems want to go back to the tax rates of JFK where the top rate was 90%? Or Peanut Carter where the top rate was 70%? Remember the top 1% of wage earners currently pay 34% of all federal income taxes The top 5% pay 54% ; the top 10% pay 65%; and the top 50% pay 96% How much more in taxes do Dems want these people to pay and why?
