    So would you support a flat tax?

    Oh, was that the plan?
    The gap is worrisome.
    The charts don't show who has created wealth versus redistributed it. Nor do they show that the wealthy pay most of the income taxes. Nor do they show that people can move throughout income levels as they age.
    Nor do they lend themselves to an easy fix, though they are obviously supposed to suggest that the wealthy should pay more.
    For instance we could return to a top tax rate of 90%. That might well lead to more equality in the sense that we'd all be poor. And there you have the problem with "solutions" from the left.

    Isn't that the idea behind a progreesive tax schedule? Here's another chart for you.


    It seems pretty clear from these charts that anyone that makes less than $1.1 million has drank the GOP Kool Aid if they support keeping the taxes low on the rich.

    No lies, just the painful truth. Keep supporting the GOP like a good little sheep. Without people like you blindly supporting their agenda, they would have no power to get anything done. Baah, baah, baah!

    What's your favorite flavor of Kool Aid? GOP Grape? Funny coincidence that the flavor chosen by Jim Jones was also grape. Drink up like a good little sheep, it's a good source of vitamin c.
