    restore progressive taxation! and return to the top tax rates of the Eishenhower years

    Now the tax payer who rakes in $450 million or $45 million pays the same rate as the one making $450 thousand.
    .... In 1955 the IRS took 51.2% of the top 400 incomes.......Recently the top 400 have paid just 16.6% on an astounding average income of $345 million.
    Eishenhower saw high taxes on high incomes as an antidote to the "opulence" that leads a nation to "depravity and ultimate destruction".....In the Ike years incomes over $400K faced a 91% rate

    • Sure. Let's also cut all the taxes that did not exist during the Eisenhower years and eliminate all the welfare prorgrams that did not exist.

    • Progressive Taxation my azzs!

      It couldn't get anymore Progressive than it already is, you mouthy idiot!!

      The lower 50% pay Jackshyt in Income Taxes and get 99.9% of Obama's Nanny State payouts!

      • are you are lamebrain or what? the guy making $400 million pays the SAME rate as the guy making $45 million or the one making $450K...... jeez......... zero progessivity for the rich and super rich...... and btw, in In 1955 the IRS took 51.2% of the top 400 incomes.......Recently the top 400 have paid just 16.6% on an astounding average income of $345.................OBVIOUSLY many in the middleclass paid a higher burden of their income than did the top 400 returns........so you are indeed a lamebrained liar.....

    • So your recommendation is for the Feds to give an ocean of money to the rich and then have the IRS robinhood away that money?
      That's stupid.

    • In 1955 the IRS took 51.2% of the top 400 incomes.......Recently the top 400 have paid just 16.6% on an astounding average income of $345 million............................

      (the 30 years of trickle down since reagan have not worked and the middle class is poorer and smaller....only the rich have gotten richer , EVERYONE else has gotten poorer.... a graph of incomes show a mt everest for the top few percent rising way above a tiny middleclass barely above the poor..... just $35K of income puts you in the top half....... jeez....... 70 million Americans who take in about 12% of USA income; the 1% take in 40% more, nearly 20% of all USA income going to 1.4 million people..........astounding really.)
