but it's 70% of their incomes over a certain level. I know that's still unacceptable to some people, but saying it's 70% of their income is misstating how graduated income tax works.

Also maybe worth noting that the top rate of federal income tax in the US was over 80% for 20 years after World War 2 when they experienced a massive boom in prosperity, and remained at 70% or over until the Reagan years without the nation collapsing into the sea.
