No cursing or anything.
Anyway, to make this short and sweet, I basically made an argument that wealth redistribution has been occurring by way of the tax code for many years. One example is capital gains tax has fallen nearly 50% since the Reagan administration (28% to 15%) and we all know the poor do not benefit from this.
Wealth disparity is at an all time high.
I am upper middle class and pay 30% in taxes at the end of the day. Romney, as the most obvious example, paid about 15% in taxes during 2010 and was technically unemployed. While his rate is higher before various deductions and loopholes, his rate drops in the teens with an army of tax lawyers. Again, this does not benefit the middle-class in the same way it does the upper class.
At which point I asked which direction the money was going.
Have a good evening.
