A Wall Street Journalist says that under George Bush tax policies taxpayers making over $200,000 have seen their taxes rise from 41% to 47 percent……That caught my attention. I presume he’s not talking about the tax rate on the 2hundredthousandaires but their slice of the taxÂ pie that goes toward the federal budget. Is this really a laffer? I linked first before reading the commentary which I only listened to with half an ear. I’ve got to read this carefully, think aboutÂ it and makeÂ some pronouncement……Â but right now I’m grilling shishkebobs.
