The top marginal rate in the 50's was more than 90%, a decade in which the middle class enjoyed the greatest prosperity in history, with low unemployment, low inflation, and high productivity. The top marginal rate today is 39.6%, an era in which the middle class is losing prosperity at an alarming rate. Some of you seem to have bought into the Karl Rove, Grover Norquist, et al propaganda that the wealthy will take good care of the economy if they only get to keep more of what they acquire and get rid of those pesky regulations on their businesses. They have bought you with religious scare tactics and out and out lies to promote their agenda, which in no way benefits you or your kids and grandkids (unless you are a Walton or a Ford etc.)
The bought and paid for mentality of the greedy old tea partiers. I agree wholeheartedly with you. The "trickle down" economy,didnt work then and no matter how he spins it , it doesn't work now. Without a viable middle class they are doomed in the long run, but of course the other poster doesnt give a rats ass about the long term. More of the let them eat cake mentality. As the French said," Off with their heads!".
