The top marginal tax rate: 1945 94% Roosevelt 1957 91% Eisenhower 1964 77% Johnson 1973 70% Nixon


For the last time, a 70% top marginal tax rate is not a "far-left idea." It was the longstanding American tradition until Reagan.

The top marginal tax rate:

1945: 94% (Roosevelt)
1957: 91% (Eisenhower)
1964: 77% (Johnson)
1973: 70% (Nixon)
1986: 50% (Reagan)
2018: 37% (Trump)

In the 50s our Dad came home from WW2 went to college on GI bill, got a loan for a house, married Mom had 7 kids...we had roads, we had public schools, the country worked and folks thrived.
