coveyrise sez....."No Nation in History has ever TAXED it's way to prosperity. During the 1950s and 1960s the US produced most of it's own consumer goods and all of it's own energy needs. This is when we saw the real growth of what we like to call the Middle Class"
So you advocate policies similar to those of the 50s and 60s? Unions were at the height of their power during that time, the top marginal tax rate was over 90% at one point during the 50s (to pay back all that war debt, back then the US paid it's debts), and infrastructure and education investments were huge. Eisenhower even designed the Interestate highway project so that he could increase the rate of govt spending (and employment) when the economy slowed down.
