One person died from injuries suffered when a man drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters at a white supremacist rally Saturday in Charlottesville, Va.

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Singer confirmed one person was dead due to the crash.

"I am heartbroken that a life has been lost here. I urge all people of good will--go home," Singer tweeted.

The crash took place just before 1:45 p.m. Saturday in Charlottesville as counter-protesters were milling about the streets of the town.

Earlier in the day, white supremacists were scheduled to hold a rally in Emancipation Park called "Unite The Right." The protest was supposed to show unhappiness with the decision of the town to remove a statute of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, but it became a gathering point for white supremacists around the country.

That led to counter-protests from anti-fascist and other leftist groups. Clashes between the two sides took place throughout the morning, and local and state authorities eventually declared a state of emergency.

Police then declared the rally an "unlawful assembly" and shut it down.

The Reagan Tax Cuts Worked

Thanks to "bracket creep," the inflation of the 1970s pushed millions of taxpayers into higher tax brackets even though their inflation-adjusted incomes were not rising. To help offset this tax increase and also to improve incentives to work, save, and invest, President Reagan proposed sweeping tax rate reductions during the 1980s. What happened? Total tax revenues climbed by 99.4 percent during the 1980s, and the results are even more impressive when looking at what happened to personal income tax revenues. Once the economy received an unambiguous tax cut in January 1983, income tax revenues climbed dramatically, increasing by more than 54 percent by 1989 (28 percent after adjusting for inflation).
