Video debate: Raise the top rate back to 74%?

Unreconstructed liberals are pushing a plan to raise tax rates to pay for free college and more healthcare coverage.

Liberals in Washington really believe that you either go bold or go home as they circulate a plan to raise income tax rates. In a rationale world, the results of the 2014 midterms would have cooled liberals to their stand-by solution of raising taxes, but Washington does not reside in the rationale world. Besides, as Speaker John A. Boehner (R.-Ohio) forms a new coalition with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) against their common enemy, the Capitol Hill conservatives, who knows what will get through. In this short video, Human EventsNeil W. McCabe debates Thom Hartmann on “The Thom Hartmann Program,” the country’s top progressive talk radio show about the wisdom of higher tax rates.
