The original 1913 income tax was 1% for people with incomes above $3,000 (about $80,000 today) and 6% on $500,000 or more ($13 million). About 3% of the population was taxed. Just keep that in mind when Democrats lie and say the wealth tax will remain targeted at just the top.

There has never been nor will there ever be a type of tax that remains relegated to its original low rate and small base of payers.

@benshapiro Once a bill is signed into law it can be adjusted at will. Stand your ground.

@benshapiro People love to see the gov taking money from the "rich", but if that same gov takes more money out of (their) pockets... Well, all the fun goes away.
