  •  It matters what rate you start with (1+ / 0-)

    Obviously, the consequences of raising or lowering the tax rate when it is 90% are going to be different than when it is 36%.

    It also matters what else you do at the same time, in terms of changes to deductions and classification of income.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!

    •  Even David Brooks agrees (0+ / 0-)

      Obama is talking about raising the top marginal rate from 35% to 39%. 39% is what Clinton had it pegged at. Even conservative pundit David Brooks says that raising the top rate 3 or 4 percent would be fine.

      PS: I don't know why I'm singling out David Brooks. He's conservative. Which means he's usually wrong. But not on this one point.
