    First and most important Obama wants to keep the 75% you refer to, the "Clinton era tax brackets" are only for those making over $250,000 per year. That's a step towards what you want... Clinton era wage growth, as Clinton himself explained many times during this election.

    Your proposal to wait for ten years is silly on its face. The growth was WITH the tax brackets in place. The Bush tax cuts ruined that run and put the whole economy out of whack. So if we implement the Clinton era tax brackets for the wealthy we'll have a much better chance at Clinton era job creation and deficit reduction.

    America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity

      ..those earning more than 250k per year.

      Huge problem with Dems who want to impose the Clinton-era tax brackets on families earning less than 250k per year.
