    Because there were no corporations in the 90's when tax rates were higher for the wealthy?

    Since the wealthy don't have to pay as high percentage of their income on total taxes, they tend to not even be aware that the working class pays a higher total tax rate on their income than does the rich guy they are running for president.

    No more than they will ignore that the current policies aren't working to fix the broken system...

    you keep yammering about old tax rates as if those were fair or necessary. you need to prove that they have some use other than appealing to the envy and spite of those who have failed to achieve success

    I am still waiting for somebody to explain what is "fair".

    If I make $500,000 a year, what is my "fair share" I should pay in federal income taxes.

    Right now I believe it is 35%. Why isn't that "fair"?

    because claiming that will cause a politician to be supported by those who aren't smart enough or talented enough to make one fifth of what you make
