Super Rich Pay Less Tax

Oh, my, look at the title of this post! Rich people are paying less tax now then they used to pay–which wasn't much then, relatively-speaking.

Anybody here surprised to find this out? Anybody? You in the corner? Say what? Yes, you can go to the bathroom. Anybody else?

Yeah. That's what I thought. 

I don't mind if somebody living below the poverty level isn't kicking anything in. Somebody making a  million a year and not having to pay any taxes? I mind that. Liberty and justice for all hasn't quite overcome the rich-get-richer-and-the-poor-get-poorer-and-the-middle-class-hauls-the-freight thing, has it? 

And as Vonnegut said, so it goes.

I'd break out the pitchforks, torches, tar, feathers and split rail. But you have to be in the top 2% to afford them these days.
