53. It is a lot more than 2.7% if you go back to 1980 when things started getting out of whack

This is a good article that pretty much backs up why tax cuts for the rich are not working

And this is the yearly tax rates , both nominal and adj for inflation, going back to 1913. At times the top rate was 70-90% during the 1930's through the 1960's. Interesting to look at.
