3. The whole, "Kennedy did it first" meme

 

...is based on what Kennedy said in his debate with Nixon. What they conveniently leave out is what he said immediately afterwards, that the rich had so many loopholes they were not paying anything even at the 90% rate. So he said lowering the rate a bit and CLOSING THE LOOPHOLES would increase revenues.

So you are absolutely correct.
