    That is redistributing the tax burden=redistributing money.

    if there were no taxes on income it would still happen. Income redistribution cannot happen without government.

    You seem to assume high taxes on the productive is a given

    Well the reality is that those rates were the norm...the rates we have now are LOW

    that is moronic. For more than half of this country's history we did not even have a tax on income. The current Obama rates have lasted longer than the Clinton tax hikes. Over the last 32 years, the clinton era was an aberration in terms of being TOO High

    Do you think Obama wants to redistribute wealth?-federalinc-jpg Clinton's horribly high taxes which really weren't that high..under which the economy grew dramatically

    where is the 1790-1913 graph. And you haven't figured out that some of those high marginal tax rates have far far lower effective rates

    BTW if you like 70% rates you should pay them too

    I find it very hard to believe that there was a 90% income tax (for ~20 years), on anyone. What is that tax bracket?

    Great argument..bravo turtle i expect nothing less from ya.
    Anyways i'm not advocating for tax rates like that anyways.
    The point being that our current tax bracket is LOW..trickle down itself was redistribution of wealth

    that was the top tax bracket...out of 24 tax brackets..

    I believe it was on earnings over 200,000 bucks ( married separate), 400,000 ( married, joint) and , 300,000 ( head of household)

    So if one made 200k, one took home 20k after federal income tax alone was deducted? I don't believe that. What would be the point of working anything but a menial job that one doesn't have to care about.

    What was the tax bracket on 30k? Would I net the same?!

    First, anything above 400k would be taxed at 90% because we have progressive taxation.
    But regardless as turtle mentioned earlier the effective tax rates were no where near as high as the marginal rates
