The Rich Get Richer Department

The Daily Kos has charts which illustrate the growing disparities of income in this country since 1979. The most striking is this one which shows that the top 1% of the population increased their income by an incredible 201% over the period. This is almost four times the increase that those in the top 4% achieved and about fifteen times the increase of those in the lower 60% of the population.

Just remember the charts the next time some knave attempts to fool you into believing that the rich are getting soaked.

Quand je lis vos nombres que mes breats soulèvent et le nectar de l'amour coule entre mon échine. Si seulement vous êtes chauve je cirerai votre tête avec mes fesses.
