Nobody is paying even 35% of their income in income taxes, let alone 60 or 90%.

Back in the early 90's, when I was single, before I bought a house, I was paying right at about that during years I made a lot of $$$.

I work with contractors who make bank, and they get about 45% deducted from their checks (total deductions), since they are making bank... Not sure of their year end accounting as far as deductions go, and most of them only work 6-7 months a year, like I did before I hired on at my utility full-time... I got the same rate (~45%) deducted, but I also had a lot of write offs, so my total tax rate ended up being about 25%.
