We can see a correlation between the decreased marginal tax rates and the middle class percentage of overall wealth.
Here's a graph showing the relationship between revenues and tax rates:
Tax rate increases correlate to increase in revenue, while tax cuts do the opposite.
As to "improved economy" are we looking just at GDP or are we looking at what the median income is experiencing? The economy doesn't improve for me if the 1% get richer at my expense. Should their isolated and robust gains be considered an "improved economy" or should that be measured by how the rest of the country is doing?
You just posted different charts that all make the SAME general and arbitrary connection.
How about applying these left wing narratives practically.
Hmmm...how can we do this..
Oh !! I know. Let's compare States with varying levels of local and State tax burdens.

As everyone can see by the color coded map and the graph I've attached, progressives are clearly beating conservatives by a very wide margin.
I see from this thread that many more conservatives want to exile the non-their-side types than liberals. But liberals are the "authoritarians."
I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.
Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
The number of people per household has dropped over the last several decades-there are less people in each house. PER CAPITA is the real measure, and thats steadily rose.
Im going to give you the benefit of the doubt and presume that you are just ignorant.
