Mind-blowing income-inequality statistic

Liberals Are Cool “Let me give you a stunning number I reported the other day. From 1966 – when Lyndon Johnson was president — to 2011, 45 years later, the bottom 90 percent of Americans’ average income, as reported on tax returns, went up by a stunning $59 — almost no change at all. If you measure that $59 increase for the vast majority of Americans as one inch, then on the same scale, the incomes of those in the top 10 percent went up by 168 feet. The top one percent, 888 feet. The plutocrats — the Mitt Romney crowd, the top one percent of the top one percent? Their incomes rose by almost five miles relative to that one inch.” - David Cay Johnston Explains How Big Corporations Withhold Your Taxes and Then Pocket Them FIVE MILES! Let that sink in. And Republicans' first and only goal is to give the Top .01% more help.
