Back to the Good-old-Days
The Republicans (read rich and conservative) always want to go back to the past and complain about the tax situation. Take a look at these graphs and tell me if you see any connection between the incomes of the top 1% and the effective tax rates?
Sure, let's go back to the good old days when tax rates were HIGHER and apparently the top 1% were making MORE MONEY. At least that's the way you'd think from the conservative rhetoric.
