36. I put it at Kennedy's tax cut

reducing the top marginal rate from 90% to 70%. That top rate was there to prevent the rapid growth of plutocracy.

The Rand report put a dollar figure on it: $42,000 a year for the average worker. That's what having a plutocracy has cost each and every one of us. Think about what you could have done over the last couple of years with that 807.69 per week. Upi cpi;d jave afforded health insurance not tied to a job you hate, your kids could have gone to college without debt, you might even have been able to save for retirement.

That's what conservatives in both parties have cost us. Never forget it. Never.
