    Cenk Uygur: The Big Republican Lie on Tax Cuts

    "When you look to see what that right level is in our history, what you find is very interesting. In our glory years between 1945-1965 (these are the years that the Republicans dream of going back to), the top marginal tax rate fluctuated between 77% and 94%. I was stunned when I first learned that. People's heads would explode if you suggested those levels now. Yet, it worked for us for decades as we built the great American middle class and our manufacturing base.

    The second interesting fact is what happens when we have historically low taxes. From 1925 to1931, the highest marginal tax rate was as low as it has almost ever been - between 24-25%. And between 2003-2010, the highest marginal tax rate was also at one of its lowest points - 35%. So, what happened when we had these really low tax rates? The Great Depression and the Great Recession."


    Keep on lying dumbasses.

    You might have missed World War Two that changed the economic climate, but continue, this should be good.

    I like it when Repugs attack me when they're mad at the truth. I especially like when you do it.

    What truth is that you speak of? Twisting an economic climate 80 years ago, and somehow equating it to today?

    We have 40 million people on food assistance today. And you have the gall to target Republicans? How friggin lost are you?

    You are mad, don't try to hide it, now drink people plenty of water to flush the toxins out of your systems because when you have an angry breakdown you body releases toxins that can make you sick.

    Democrats need to run on a 90% income tax platform or maybe a 100% tax like Obama's father's wanted.

    Will they grow a sac and run on their Inner Marxist or will they lie like Andy Cuomo in NY and run on spending cuts and no new taxes?
