Those subject to that tax rate may not have liked it, but of course they consented to it.

Nobody ever paid 90%, there were so many tax loopholes that they would have had to have been brain dead to pay anything close to 90% (and the brain dead don't tend to become top earners). They still paid far too much (IMHO) but it wasn't anywhere close to 90%. It was all a sham.

Exactomundo. That rate was posted, so to speak, so that libruls would THINK that the government actually confiscated 90% of high earning indivividuals' income.
