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.
