Oh please these same 30 year arguments DON'T WORK. You guys (assuming your rich since you seem so eager to defend millionaires) have been getting tax loopholes,taxcuts, and incentives for almost 3 decades. WHERE ARE THE JOBS NOW? SHOULDN'T THE JOBS BE EVERYWHERE CONSIDERING THESE GRAPHS?
The income disparity has completely tilted toward the rich in the past 40-50 years in ways we have never seen before in this country....
While their taxes are at records lows, lows we have never seen before in this country...
Your talking points are getting old,washed out, and plain silly. We are ready to fight, and let the truth be heard throughout the entire country!
Hang on a second, what exactly do you think these graphs show?
The first one shows me that the income ratios between those income segments have been pretty much unchanged for 50 or 60 years. That is to say that the slopes of the lines are fairly steady.
The second one shows me that the bar for being considered "ultra rich" in the eyes of the tax code has fallen to the point where it includes most small businesses and farmers.
Your comments lead me to think that you have a wildly different understanding of what they are showing.
Most people are probably going to have problems with the first chart. That site really doesn't like people linking to their images. If you want to see it, try going to the front page
first, and then go to view the chart
