Right on Ann, but you didn't go far enough. How about another bracket for those earning over 1 million of 50%. Not only eliminate their deduction for state and local taxes, but also their home mortage deduction. Have a minimum tax on all their dividends and capital gains of the same 50%. I read somewhere that 8 out of 10 of the richest counties in the US voted for BHO. Lets sock it to the Hollywood types, the liberal media personalities and the spoiled sports figures.
