Perfectly Legal Rape and Pillage of the Middle ClassThis is astounding:
The top 1% now takes in an astounding 16% of national income, up from 8% in
1980. The tax codes protect them, just as they protect corporate America,
through a vast system of loopholes.
John Edwards, in his criticism of GOP policies that reward wealth over work, has been making the same point consistently: The middle and working classes of this country are carrying a disproportionate amount of the tax burden, showing up for work and picking up the tab for funding this country while the wealthy move money around in accounts, take tax breaks and call it a day.
