GOP organization refuses to drop JFK from Bush tax cut ads
The Kennedy's, are right to be furious about this. JFK did cut income taxes on the rich - from 70 percent to 21 percent - for top wage earners in 1963, and it did boost the economy. But the lowest wage earners of the time period paid barely anything. Now, the lowest wage workers pay 30 percent of their income in taxes, with no relief in sight, and corporations pay zero by opening a mailbox in Bermuda. It is offensive. If they did this to my brother, I would be livid too.
