    hike, anything she proposes will sound reasonable to fix the next great mess Scottie is making. Then she needs a whole bunch of conservative tax people standing with her to say that he is screwing the State.

    The time has come to repair this country and care for its' veterans.

    •  We have essentially a flat tax in Wisconsin (11+ / 0-)

      for income.  Check the rates here.

      The individual rates start at earnings of ZERO DOLLARS with 4%, with 5.84% rates between $10,910 - $21,820 (the working poor), 6.27% rates between $21,820 - $240,190 (includes the entire middle class) and a top rate of 7.65% starting above $240,190.

      Millionaires and billionaires are taxed at the same rate as the top of the middle class and the lower middle class at the same rate as the upper middle class.

      It's not fair taxation because it squeezes the poor and working poor while easing the burden for upper earners.  

      We need a millionaire rate at the very least.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
