    needs to escalate up to about 70% at the top of the income scale.

    That 39.6% is a piddly difference from 35%.   Many, many people -- including a guy I work with who has an MBA -- don't know that the 39.6% applies only to the top level of income made, NOT the whole $250,000.  

    The people who benefit the most from the system need to pay the most into the system.
