    Let all the Bush tax cuts expire, the Treasury needs the money. Add an additional tax on top for the top earners, maybe the "Sanders Millionaires Tax".

        and apply the same rates and look how much revenue we would produce

        •  I'm not concerned about revenue (0+ / 0-)

          shifting tax burden from the middle 85% to the top .33%, oh yeah.

          Working and middle class families used to be allowed to keep what they earned in the 50 yrs prior to the Reagan years. Engaging these families in the economy. Now these families are taxed out of the economy.
