The rethuglicans are crying about class warfare...what a joke! Here is a brief (and interesting) progression of the alleged class warfare:
During Dwight Eisenhower’s presidency the top marginal tax rate – what the richest Americans paid on their top tranche of income – was around 90 percent.
In other words, the American tax structure has been roughly turned on its head. From the rich paying between 70 and 90 percent on their top income, some now pay 20 percent or less, which means there is a much bigger incentive to be greedy.http://consortiumnews.com/2011/09/26/the-one-answer-tax-the-rich/A quote from the right's messiah...( Ronny Raygun)
We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy.http://www.huliq.com/3257/ronald-reagan-close-loopholes-millionaires-must-pay-their-fair-share-videoWhat would the GnOP say about him today?
