    which is why we should cut corporate taxes and tax individual income instead.

    According to the graph you provided the two highest tax rates were during Wilson, and FDR....Shocking. Is that what you would like to see? Tax rates at the top of 80 to 90%?

    It might be a good idea to do something sooner rather than later. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan planned tax reform but the electorate voted for Obama's plan instead.

    i'm not going to waste time on strawman fallacies. if you'd like to have a discussion with me, it will be a rational one.

    i agree.

    i would be willing to entertain the idea of a very low corporate rate if all individual income (including investment income) was taxed as income above a cap. i would also be willing to negotiate the specifics of the cap.

    Once again I find it hilarious that these flipping democrats in government (and in general) actually believe they own these businesses..... These clowns do nothing but degrade these businesses and rape them of their profits and then get all upset when they leave the country taking their corporate jobs with them.

    What do these clowns expect when they do nothing more than degrade these businesses and use these corporations as cash cows????

    In this unfriendly business atmosphere I would have absolutely no desire to do business in the US...

    Hey idiot Senator?

    If you want Burger King to stay then make the corporate tax laws/regs more corporate friendly.

    Do you really think Burger King is leaving for ANY other reason then financial? Or do you think they have a sudden passion for hockey, poutine and more snow?

    What did I say that wasn't "rational"???? Look at the graph....The two highest rates are both during the Presidencies I listed.... So, I am asking...80% to 90%, is that the rates you'd like to see this country return to? And if your answer is yes, then what do you suppose would happen today with the wealth in this country....Remember, they have the means to leave.

    in no point in this thread did i indicate that i supported a confiscatory top marginal rate. i only support top rates above fifty percent during wartime.

    perhaps before we continue this discussion, you should :

    a. read the thread.

    b. read what i actually posted in the thread.

    i support a tiered marginal structure and taxing all income as income above a cap. i also support cutting the corporate rate. you would have already known this if you had actually taken the time to read what i posted before tossing out your strawman and then hitting it like a piñata.
