No. I am pretty sure they are arguing that the higher rates were able to generate government revenue (and therefore decrease debt) without hurting the economy."

Well, you are mistaken. The 'rich' paid only 60% of all income taxes in the 50s and 60s.

It was the poor working folks who ponied up the other 40%!

Now, the rich are paying 90% of all income taxes and the 'poor' - that is apparently 47%, pay ZERO in income taxes.

You seem to have missed a MAJOR Point...oh, right...libs don't argue facts...just emotions...

When will libs actually get their facts straight about the percentages paid by 'the rich'?
