      The bottom line is there is tremendous wealth that is not being used to create capacity. Instead of allowing a very small and seflish minority to keep it, why isn't it in the national interest to tax at the rates of Kennedy, or even Eisenhower, so that that that Capital reenters the economy in the form of investment. When the tax rate was higher, investment in real growth industry occurred. That in turn generated how revenues for the government. To say that people have to accept they will end their lives in miserable, bone curshing poverty and suffering and that is that is to say the least, a failure of leadership. If this is the best this President can offer, then he does a disservice to the office, and the citizenry. He should hand his in shame.
