The problem is not the percentage, it is the tax code and all of the deductions allowed. The income tax should be replaced with a flat tax and no deductions. The politicians who claim to support this bill are the biggest part of the problem and most become rich within a few years of holding office. This wealth comes from those would are being targeted for the 50% tax rate. Who really believes these politicians will actually go after the people who are making them rich. Wake Up and use some common sense.
