    system really is.

    An analysis that begins with:

    In 2009, only 1,198,412 Americans earned more than $250K !!

    Reagan's Dawning Damned Us!

    In 1982, their TAX HOLIDAY BEGAN. The tax rate dropped 20%!  From

    90%  The tax rate, 1944 - 1964, to
    70% where it remained until it dropped to
    50% in 1982.  Not good enough!  It dropped AGAIN to
    38.5% in 1987.  Still not good enough.  It dropped AGAIN to
    28% in 1988!  Bush I, increased it to
    31% in 1991, Clinton increased it to
    39.6% in 1993, and Bush II dropped it AGAIN to
    38.6% in 2002.  Still not good enough.  Bush II dropped it AGAIN to
    35% in 2003.

    There were No Tax Holidays for the majority of us, however.  
    Since 1941, most income earners have paid between 20% - 28% income tax consistently!
