The claim is made that "higher taxes will kill the economy"

In mathematics, all you need is one counterexample to show a statement is false.

The experience cited of the 1960s (when we had the greatest growth in real median income) shows even a 70% marginal tax rate didn't "kill the economy"

And of course, a 39% top tax rate won't/

In the 1950's & 1960's the top tax rate was 70-92%

USA laid the interstate system, built the Internet, put a man on the moon, defeated Communism, their education system was the envy of world, their middle class thriving, their economy was unparalleled. You want that back? Raise the fucking taxes on the rich!

"The opposite belief, correlation proves causation, is a logical fallacy by which two events that occur together are claimed to have a cause-and-effect relationship. The fallacy is also known as cum hoc ergo propter hoc (Latin for "with this, therefore because of this") and false cause."
