A friend says "I have no problem taxing the rich. The post-war period '45-'60 was one of the strongest periods of economic growth in American history, and the top tax rates were 91%- 70% (once Kennedy's tax cut took effect.) If we're serious about eliminating deficits and paying down the debt, then we have to get the money from somewhere(plus cutting spending, most likely military), and the growth since Reagan's tax cuts has mostly gone to the wealthiest sector of society. So, who else do we tax to solve our budget problems?" Nathan Larson (talk) 21:39, 4 November 2012 (MSK)
