Sharing under "Know Your Class War"--Who are the 1%?
(Via Crooks and Liars.)
The myth that we are talking about "job creators" when we are talking about the 1% really has to go. Some are, but a lot of those people don't so much have people working for them, as their money is working for them. And under our current system, it's been working for them very well. And as a class, they have received ample benefits from our federal government, but those non-job-creating folks? Because of the different rate for capital gains--they pay a lower effective tax rate than wage-earners generally do.
