Edith :"The highest marginal tax rate now is what, 35%? And with "loopholes and such" the wealthiest are still paying far less. What was the one that Mitt did disclose? 14%? "Actually, if you look at tax collections, the 'rich' paid a signficantly less portion of the total tax take when rates were 90%.Back in the 60s, they paid about 60% of all taxes collected.Now, with lower tax rates, they pay about 80%of all taxes and the top 10% pay 90% of all taxes collected.back in 1960, almost NO ONE paid zero income taxes! now, almost 50% pay no income taxes!....YOU ARE WAY OFF BASEThe percentage of taxes paid by the rich has gone up by 50% in 50 years!t
