    You're right and I'm wrong. My apologies.

    "It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now ... Cutting taxes now is not to incur a budget deficit, but to achieve the more prosperous, expanding economy which can bring a budget surplus."

    John F. Kennedy, Nov. 20, 1962, president's news conference



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "Lower rates of taxation will stimulate economic activity and so raise the levels of personal and corporate income as to yield within a few years an increased not a reduced flow of revenues to the federal government."

    John F. Kennedy, Jan. 17, 1963, annual budget message to the Congress, fiscal year 1964


    That stance isn't liberal
    You like a top marginal rate of 70%??????

    Gee, Imagine that, Slate Magazine, notice the liberal spin and ignoring exactly what JFK did. Did he target tax cuts? Did all taxpayers get tax cuts? What did that do to economic growth and govt. revenue? Keep spinning and showing your liberalism which obviously demands a much bigger nanny state to take care of you and your inability to compete

    I hope Conservative is taking notes of what a man of character looks like. You, sir, displayed character. Thank you.

    I like the cuts but as usual you look at the rates and not what was actually paid. I remember deducting credit card interest during those years along with other deductions but if it makes you feel good to talk about rates, carry on

    I don't apologize to liberals who call me a liar instead of being mistaken or making a mistake. You use the word lie a lot but ignore your distortions and lack of context. I don't see a lot of character in anything you post

    JFK/LBJ lowered the rates but closed loopholes.

    You gotta wonder where liberals here learned to use that particular word?
