Maybe it's because I remember when the top rate was more than double what it is today, and somehow people found the motivation to press on

Did you know this year is the 100th year of taxes? Back in 1913 the rates were from 1% to a high rate of 7%. You will be in the 1% bracket if you made under 464,000. To be in the top rate, you had to make over 11 million. Of course these numbers are adjusted for inflation, but I really wish I was in the 1% range :)

Let's all enjoy the century mark of paying taxes!
