Nov 17, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: News Max

Republicans in Congress should be putting options on the table to raise government revenues as part of fiscal cliff negotiations, but raising taxes should not be one of those options, Newt Gingrich said in an exclusive interview with Newsmax TV.

Taxes are the lowest they'v been in a long time, especially for the top bracket.

2009-2011 Federal tax rate for married people filing jointly (I tried to pick what would have been a mid-income family during each designated time period)

$68,000-$137,300 = 25%
TOP rate (over $379,150)= 35%

REAGAN – 1981-1989

1981
$45,000-60,000 = 49%
TOP rate (over $215,400)= 70% PLEASE NOTE

1987
$45,000-90,000 = 35%
TOP rate (over $90,000)= 38.5
(After 1987, tax rates got very complicated, with “tax bubbles,” etc.– there is no straightforward tax table)

We do need to simplify the laws and get rid of a lot of deductions.
