  •  Nothing shuts up a neocon like the 91% tax rate (4+ / 0-)

    I can't understand why it isn't everyone's standard response when they moan how higher taxes will destroy our economic growth. For ten years, while we became the wealthiest nation on Earth that was the top rate. And we spent like crazy with the GI bill, the very expensive Marshall plan which expanded our markets and made allies out of enemies, building the interstate highway system, and paying off a higher deficit than what we now have to pre-WWII levels in about 10 years time. Make this a wonderful Thanksgiving day gift to the neocons who complain about the coming 39% top rate at the dinner table today! Savor the delicious pretzel logic as you ask them to explain that fact away.
