    Why those taxed to dirth job creators created so many jobs then

    Remember the 1950s:

    Krugman says the effective tax rate on the wealthiest was 70 percent, not 91 percent.

    As is usual, a Republican in the White House meant recessions. Businesses welcome the excuse to trim payrolls. Unemployment reached levels of 6.2% and even 6.9%.

    And investors were in the market for the long-haul. Long term capital gains were used for reinvestment, not to live off a la Romney.
