The eXiled Unveils RATFOCR Tax Reform Movement

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Mark Ames of The eXiled has a new online campaign to roll back the taxes of the wealthiest 0.1% Americans to the Eisenhower-era marginal rate of 91%. It’s currently at 35%. And don’t even ask about the capital gains rate for Wall Street. It’s lower than yours, trust us.

Ames is calling the effort RATFOCR. It looks like the RATFOCR website is still in a bit of an infant lull, but knowing Ames’ past work, its only a matter of time before the cannons start firing.
