The 1935 Revenue Act (AKA the “Soak the Rich” tax) raised tax rates on individual incomes greater than $50,000. Although questionably effective in raising federal income and promoting equitable income distribution, the bill had much popular support. It was vehemently opposed by business and the wealthy, who accused FDR of being a traitor to his own class.
