It was Revolver, and 95% wasn't the base tax rate, it was the tax rate for the very tip top income bracket. Your statements are so inaccurate, one wonders if they're intentional.

well .there it is!

NOT a lie ...the British had top marginal rate of 95% in the sixties

no idea how high one's income had to be for the top bracket ..but it would have been measured in Pounds that doesn't matter.

Clearly not deceit to round up to 100%, maybe imply it's a total rate (instead of marginal on HUGE incomes), and then attribute the idea to an American candidate 40yrs later

not deceit ...maybe brain-damage.
