... It is either that, or increase the federal income tax rate on those earning more than $250,000 per year to something like 77%. No reputable economist thinks that it economically practicable, and of course it is not politically possible.

How is something that worked great for 50-60 years of the nation's history not 'economically practicable', Torie?

Of course ultimately the only way the country has any decent economic future is to raise those riches taxes back to 70% plus - all our problems date clearly to when Reagan lowered that rate.
