The superhi tax rates were a relic of WWII hat the politicians resisted bringing back down to normal. Few ever actually paid 90% of anything. Few were making in that tax bracket then. There were tremendous #'s of deductions & loopholes for the well-connected to exploit. I think they justified hi rates based on Keynesianism, & the Cold War. Yet, JFK still concluded those rates had to come down. You can rest assured anyone who was actually paying 90% then wasn't working very hard or risking much for it.
For all the hysterics and twisting of Mitt Romney's comments, something was revealed that already was simmering in plain sight. Those carrying the load are tired. They are tired of paying high taxes and getting nothing but grief for their efforts. This isn't an American phenomenon - yet. But, all around the world for the last few years it's becoming apparent that workers and producers want to distance themselves from non-workers and non-producers.

Northern Italy is leaning toward a move to reinstate borders from before the country was unified so the industrious part of the nation can keep more of the prosperity...
