    Nah,a pre reagan tax-rate of 70% would do just fine.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I did...guess I didn’t have enough deductions then.

    Doubt you were old enough then to have a job for if you were you would understand that no one paid 70% tax rates and the govt. is collecting a lot more today than then even with the lower rates. The system today is very progressive which should make liberals ecstatic

    I do know that my Union dues were tax deductible, as was the interest on my car payments but alas, the baseball bats were not.

    Great point, so does it really matter what the tax rates are or does it matter how much tax revenue is collected? However what does any of this have to do with the thread topic? Seems to me that you are trying the derail another thread?

    Thread topic is = Unions threaten Business


    The first sentence, of your first post in the thread = randel, are you a leftwing zealot or simply a pawn for the unions to use for their own benefits?
