  •  I wasn't overtaxed in the 90s, (4+ / 0-)

    I'm even less taxed now, and all I can say is my income has not gone down. I made between 50 and 65 k a year in those years and seem to remember that my federal income tax was running close to 1 k a month by the end of the decade. And there was no break being given on FICA then either.

    Is my memory faulty, or did W have at least as great a reality-distortion field as Steve Jobs?

    •  What was the median wage growth for the 10 years.. (0+ / 0-)

      ..going into the Clinton tax hikes?

      Let's get the same median wage growth over a 10-year period.

      Then we can start discussing a tax hike on the working and middle-class.
