I think we should go back to the 91% rate. Then rich liberals in California can pay 91% federal income tax plus 13.3% state income tax plus 2.35% Medicare tax (when the Dems hike that) for a total of 106.65%. They'll have to dig into their savings to avoid going to jail, and think of all the jobs it'll create.


You seem to forget that while democrats are eager to pass increased taxation. They never seem to pay those taxes because they are tax cheats. Daschule, Geitner, Kerry & Rangel are a few names that come to mind.
