The answer is there in plain text. Here I'll even quote it for you again:

This is wrong on multiple levels. First of all, while conservatives see smaller government as an end in itself, liberals donít see bigger government the same way. Think about it: while you often see conservatives crow about, say, reducing discretionary spending as a good thing just because the number is down, do you ever see liberals crowing about a rise in spending, never mind what on? Liberals want government to do certain things, like provide essential health care; the size of government per se isnít the objective.

Second, Keynesianism is not and never has been about promoting bigger government. Outside the US, this is obvious: there have been Tory Keynesians in Britain, the Germans favor both a big welfare state with heavy regulation and balanced budgets. Even in the US, when the political heat isnít so intense, you find conservative economists promoting quite Keynesian views of stabilization policy ó Greg Mankiw is the editor of two volumes on New Keynesian Economics, and the Bushies were quite happy to argue for tax cuts as a way to boost spending.

What is true is that some conservatives in America have always opposed Keynesian thought because they believe it legitimizes an active role for government ó but thatís not what Keynesianism is about, and not the reason I or others support it.

So to be clear. Your answer to the question:

What is an acceptable tax percentage people should pay?

is

"Keynesianism is not and never has been about promoting bigger government."

+1, considering this is what the government has always done and always will. No matter what side is in power.
