Exclamation The Gap Is Growing

Pretty amazing statistics.

Income Inequality In America (click here)

Here's a chart that is pretty sobering.




Before I hear the usual comments, I in no way begrudge those who are rich.

I just think something is not quite right, with the massive shift in distribution of the wealth in the last 50 years.

Damn good thing the top 2% got their tax cut....they might have been out on the street without it.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Mother Jones and you say you arent a liberal

Ahh but remember a large majority of small business isnt incorporated. Hence the increase in personal income tax numbers

Re: The Gap Is Growing

I could be wrong. But the way I look at the taxing of the rich, is that if you tax wealthy business owners, aren't they going to pack up thier business and take then elsewhere, where taxes are less? Thus, putting us in an even bigger mess than we already are?

It was on the front page of Yahoo.

Yahoo only had part of the article though, so I went to MJ.

Where did it say it only applies to incorporated businesses?

Besides, you're just guessing............. again.

You are 100% correct. But it has already happened.

I'm sure that's what you've been told....and it seems a lot of people have actually bought it.

Kind of like the myth that "tinkled on" economics...... is best for this country.

Most wealthy business owners are not going to move their business, in a pique over a 4% tax increase......... on their personal income above $250,000.

No, not really what I've been told. Just what I have concluded. And if its only 4%, then what is the big deal if they don't pay it?
