Why is it that the top 20% of income earners paying 40% of the income tax, with the top 50% paying ~95% of all income taxes, is fair? Perhaps the problem with the picture isn't the tax rates so much as the way in which income levels are arrived at in the country. Also, no doubt Clinton benefitted from split govt and some luck with interest rates.
