Jobs Fact:  When tax rates for the wealthy are low, job growth rates are low.

From 1950 to 2010, when the top marginal tax rate was over 39%, the average annual percent growth in total payroll employment was over 2.3%; when the top marginal tax rate was under 39%, the average annual percent growth in total payroll employment was under 1%.

The top ten years of job growth since 1950 occurred when top marginal tax rates were 50% or more!
