1. I've had this on my fridge for several years.

It just says it all.

2. I like the graphic, but...

Are you sure the numbers are right?

The top marginal rate under Eisenhower was 91%.

Is that at the beginning of their term, the end of their term, the average for their time in office?

And why is Truman on the other side of FDR?

If its at the end of their term that explains the absence of JFK. Otherwise, where is he? Where is Bush Sr.?

I would post it to facebook, but kind of like Bush's scathing letter from the service; the truth gets lost in the minor details.

4. Why don't you do a graph for us and we'll illustrate it.

But don't make it too complicated. Studies have shown that Conservatives and especially TeaBaggers do not rank high on the intelligence scale, nor do they comprehend complicated ideas all that well.

5. I realize that they don't understand complicated things...

That's why I'm concerned that they'll grab a hold of something simple and that's all they will talk about.

I'll look into making a graph. I don't sit at the computer much (I mostly use my iPhone) but I think this is a point worth spreading around.

Here's an existing graph of income, corporate and capital gains taxes.
