      HC, And as I have consistently maintained, as did Reagan in 86, the way to fix that is to say "income is income" and tax all of it at the same rate until the debt is back to Y2K, and then begin to lower the rate.
      I'll settle for 40% marginal rate--though I would much prefer the rates in effect when a kid from mthe projects in Brooklyn got his shot. Then it would go back to being "exceptional."

    • Don't worry HC, the super rich will call for higher taxes on themselves @ the 40% level, Balty told me so, so it must be true. LOL, UCMTSU. 40% More Years!!!

      I'm sure after Hillary wins in 2016, she'll make sure the Walton's from Bentonville, Arkansas will pay their fair share just like they did when Bill was in charge. BTW, did "bought and paid for", more stimulus, more deficit spending, more QE, 0% interest rates Krugman bring these tax avoidance schemes up in his article????
