When Will We Learn?
During what years was the USA at our economic peak? 1940-80. The tax rates on the
wealthy from 1940-80 were double to triple today's rates, no coincidence. And don't say 'the rich
didn't really pay them'. There's no way our economy grew so much and we
did so much with such low debt without vastly more revenue. From 1940-80
we paid for WWII, Korean War, Vietnam war, Republican Eisenhower built
our Entire entire Interstate Expressways system and we went to the
moon-manned 6 times! Kennedy only lowered the upper rate a little, but
Reagan decimated it and America has gone into debt and disrepair since
then. Sad...When will we learn?
