    If we had the same progressivity in our taxes as we had in 1980, we could balance the budget with a little smaller percentage for everyone.

    (Not that a balanced budget this deep in the economic hole makes sense.)

    What is fucking us over is the taxes on the rich go down doubly. They get lower rates and they get special rates on the incme which mostly goes to them -- dividends, capital gains, inheritance.
