for my libo friends.
read senator kennedy's speech. it takes 10-15 minutes.

"Our Republican colleagues will no doubt claim that higher taxes on the wealthy will stifle economic growth. I remember Senator Phil Gramm saying in 1993 that the Clinton tax bill would cause the greatest recession since the Great Depression. His crystal ball was certainly fogged. Under President Clinton, we created 22 million new jobs, and notwithstanding the higher taxes, the rich actually grew richer in the 1990s. The marginal tax rates on high incomes that I would favor would still be far lower than the marginal rates in effect during the most economically productive decades of the last century. Republicans love to quote President Kennedy on cutting taxes, but as I remind them, the top tax bracket on his Inaugural Day was 91 percent. "
