    There should be a 51 percent tax rate for people earning over 300k.

    Extreme lefty policies can do as much damage to an economy as extreme right policies.

    The marginal tax rate for earners above 36K is already 51% on taxable earnings, So if you earn between 36k-100K as a PAYE employee you might already be paying roughly that sum, although the higher up you get the more tax dodges available to you. But heres the rub, the effective average tax rate paid by those earning 100k plus (and theres over 80,000 of them) is 27%. That is wrong and needs to be addressed. Actually, it will be and no amount of voodoonomic trickle down effect mumbo jumbo is going to change that.
