Here's another history lesson - the top marginal income tax rate was ~90% in the 1950s and 1960s. The USA of the 50s and 60s (social issues aside) was probably the closest humanity has come to Utopia in all world history. Rapid growth, fantastic schools, jobs for everyone, affordable housing and technological advancement. It's funny, while no one liked taxes back then they didn't seem to b**** about them as much as people do now, despite the rates being massively lower.
