[QUOTE=Come Back to NY;4004813]'95: $6 billion x 30%= $1.8 billion in tax revenue....
'07: $22.9 billion x 17%= $3.8billion in tax revenues....
so the tax rate halved but the $$$ of taxes paid more than doubled...and left wingers want to complain...lmao
based on '95 rates its a whopping $3billion more....hey dawg- any charts for the $$$ of taxes the welfare class paid in 1995 versus 2007??? any #'s on tax revenue lost of those who didn't pay fed tax in '95 versus those that didn't pay in '11??
Please note: for the most part, these are pre-crash numbers.The deficit has grown much larger and faster since 2008
Clearly reform is needed.
