I've been saying it here forever, but going back to something similar to Eisenhower's tax plan seems like a no-brainer. It's so odd to me that so many people that would benefit from it, and have no hope of ever making $10MM a year, seem to think it's a bad idea.
It's easy to say "take" what doesn't belong to you.
That said... going back to 24 tax brackets, everyone paying higher taxes, tax laws have changed where property is on longer considered "depreciation"... you are smoking some good stuff.
If anything... it should be a flat one bracket tax with ZERO deductions for EVERYONE. (except of course poverty level being exempt)
Yes we would mostly all pay a little more... but the asshats in congress wouldn't be paying 15% while the rest of us are paying higher percentage brackets. Everyone would be paying the same percentage, which is fair.

AOC has mysogynists running scared. beautiful
Being scared of radical socialist politics has absolutely nothing to do with misogyny. I'm gettin fairly sick and tired of the "prejudice card" being played every time somone disagrees with a far winged politics.
There's nothing radical about a national healthcare system or in asking the ultra-wealthy to pay a high rate on the extreme ends of their income. A vast majority of the developed world does the former and we used to do the latter, until really rich folks started writing tax law. What ought to scare you is the Mango Maggot controlling our nuclear arsenal and the fact that he is just plain stupid enough to use it during one of his Twitter meltdowns.
