    It's because it's a complex idea, and not a sound bite.

    But with New Media and video, it's should be a cinch.

    Make a powerpoint doc with the whizzing in from the side of each section of income, labeled as the level of the marginal rate to which it applies.

    Send the doc to your mobile phone which can display it.

    Whip it out and show the leary-to-believe-it.

    Tell them they can look it up, right on the www.IRS.gov website, too.

      small business owner that they don't understand something as simple as marginal tax rates.  No wonder most of our small businesses fail.  You cannot run a successful small business and not understand budgeting, profit and loss statements and of course taxes.
