Well, skippy went to see where you got your info, Thinkprogressive really.

Yes tax rates were historically high in the 50's, you would have our gentle readers believe all Americans paid 90% to the Government, wrong! that rate was for the very highest earners and they didn't actually pay that after standard deductions. the National average was about 56%.

Many Americans back then, like today, pay no Federal Income tax at all, that would be you.

47% of Americans today do not pay Federal Income tax.

Now go figure out how you're going to repay you student loans.

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

    No actually your so dumb it makes my head hurt,, Somalia is not a Capitalist country, it is one of the poorest in the world, life expectancy 46.

    The highest tax rate in the 1920's was 17%, for those making over 4 million.

    The lowest, was .32 % for those making less then 100,000.

    Your 80 k in debt, wow you are a monumental failure. You could have bought a house. You will probably never repay that debt, but why should you care, someone else can pay your medical, buy your food pay for an education that did nothing for you, your dumb as a rock. Go slap your libtard teachers, Socialism is a tyrannical Government forcing those that succeed to pay for those who don't even try.

    Lol lol I see ones like him who are in their 40's and 50's and still have student debt. I went to a great school and they paid my way! I have a woman coworker with 4 children and all got full tuition through either academic or sports scholarships. One turned down Harvard to go to a state school since the state school was paying for everything.

    Some people should not go to college.

          You are dumb, my property taxes pay for Police and Fire services, there are not Socialist programs, boy you are dumb, 90 % tax rate in the 50's wrong again, be back later with tax tables.

          Everyone pays for a service and that service provides it free of charge to everyone. And you are so uneducated as to not realize that isn't Capitalism? Your entire life is reliant on Socialism working hand in hand with Capitalism, but Capitalism is acting cancerous and overwhelming the Socisalism in America. We need to reverse it fast before we become a bigger Bangladesh.

            You say the rate was reserved for the highest earners (true) but then say the national average, do you understand the difference? The vast Vast majority of the 47% are 2 groups 1) Old people who rely on Social Security, 2) Poor people in the (Largely solid Republican) Confederate states.

                  Enough with your Bull $HIT, What you are is a racist, one who wants Government programs that are there to support you.

                  Poor people are poor because they make bad choices, pure and simple and they are in all 50 States and your tone, with the Confederate BS tells me everything I need to know.

                  The 47 % are the lazy AZZHOLES WHO DON'T WANT TO WORK, LEAVE THE ELDERLY OUT OF IT.

                      Mike, Kingofcrap is to far gone, none of his thoughts or his words are his own, all the crap libtards and racists shoved into his head.

                      He wants Socialism, but is going to make something of his self, let the Greedy bloated government take all his money and give it to someone else.

                      You'll get what you ask for Kingofcrap.

                        Are you sure you're over 13? Adults discuss using facts. I stated basic facts, you just say nonsense.You are such a child with your  "WAHH Stop saying facts WAHH". Poor people are poor because rich as holes like you squash and destroy anyone who threatens your wealth and you pay your workers $7.25 an hour. The 11 Confederate states have 82% of under 65 people in the 47% category.  Lowest is Left leaning Vermont by the way. Elderly people on Social security don't pay federal income tax, thus they make up a big chunk (30%) of the 47%.

                          I thought you were 8 years old, looks like you're even younger then I originally thought. You don't understand the difference between socialism and communism. Or any thing about any economic system at all.

                            Our economic system can't survive under the type of socialism you want.  How do you intend on supporting this?  Higher taxes?  LOL!  Yea sure, take from the producers and give to the takers.  See what happened to Greece?  And don't bring up the high taxes back in the 1950's...They had deductions back then that they don't have today.  Back then a doctor who made 50K could (on paper) deduct that entire amount, which means he paid no taxes.  Don't listen to your liberal professors who never had a real job or had to make a payroll their entire lives.

                            Never give up.  Banana

                              That is what compromise is for. The Denmark style utopia won't work in the US, but there needs to be politicians who will advocate for it so that the middle is actually in the middle. Instead we have center-right moderate conservatives like Obama and Hillary advocating far-right positions and then needing to fall off a cliff in order to meet the Republicans half way. No economic system can function without a healthy dosing of other systems. Venezuela, Somalia, North Korea, The United States, all failures because they don't have a balance.
