    The same rates that Americans paid under that PINKO COMMIE Eisenhower!!!

    90% for top earners. It discouraged profit-taking at the expense of worker wages.

    i've always believed that everyone should pay the same % but have come to realize that the top 1% should be taxed a bit higher. the problem is that politicians, from period to period, will play with that % to their advantage.

    so, to answer your question, i don't have a clue.

    I have to defer on this. I don't want anything to change until the politicians get hell bent serious about reducing the debt...AND I MEAN REDUCING THE BOTTOM LINE! The additional revenue they would recieve would just end up with more out of control spending. Until then, fuck em.

    The $10,000 - $20,000 crowd paid somewhere between 38% - 42% for many of those years, you okay with that too? Thought not.

    I'd suggest killing yourself but you'd probably find a way to screw that up resulting in death of bystanders so I'll just applaud you for your ability to count to potato.

    41.5% then erase:

    1. Bush tax cuts forever

    2. corporate subsidies forever

    3. off shore stashes forever

    4. all special interest campaign contributions

    5. taxpayer assistance of any sort = insist on the Free Market aka pay your own way

    6. self investigation of congressional members

    I'd suggest it is time to clean house!!!
