Just keep taxing the rich you ____ ____ soon the rich will be anyone with a house that is payed off.
Show us the math. Because 57% effective tax rate is unattanable through federal income tax + state income tax. You're leaving out some key pieces of information. If you're talking about marginal tax rates, then the effective tax rate would be much lower. Even millionaire movie stars in California do not pay 57% in Fed+state income tax.
