No Republican in Congress will ever vote to raise the top tax rate because greedy anti-tax millionaires are their biggest campaign contributors. Getting re-elected is more important to them than doing what’s best for the country. It’s their livelihood!
When Bill Clinton raised the top tax rate slightly, it caused a booming economy and a balanced budget. Then, as now, Republicans predicted a financial catastrophe. That didn’t happen, and it didn’t give him one vote.
