    Ratchet it up to the levels it was at under Eisenhower (90% top marginal rate) but without loopholes.  

    Watch the Rs shit in their pants.

    •  G2 federal income tax rates are set by Congress (0+ / 0-)

      All tax bills must originate in the House. As long as the GOP holds the House no new income tax rates will be proposed. In addition if the gopers hold 41 seats in the Senate, even in 2013, you will not see an income tax rate increase. Our best hope is that the Dems in the Senate will have the political will to allow the Bush tax cuts to expire at the end of 2012. It takes no Congressional action to let the Bush tax cuts expire, and that's the best we are going to do in the foreseeable future.
