4. Also, historically it can be shown that the last time we needed to keep the nation fully employed,

Eisenhower saw to it that community colleges and hospitals were built, the interstate highway system came into being, and the revenue sitting in the pockets of the people who had the jobs from building all these things meant homes were built as well.

All that came about because the tax rate hit on the rich, and not the poor and middle class.
