Not sure a whole lot needs to be said here. Conveniently for the rhetoric of the Occupy Wall Street movement, a new report from the Congressional Budget Office notes that the top one percent of earners saw income growth of 275 percent between 1979 and 2007, while the majority of Americans saw growth of just under 40 percent and the poorest far less than that.
There’s only one possible conclusion to draw from this: The supposedly non-partisan CBO has gotten far too cozy with Democrats, labor unions, Occupiers, and commies, and started manipulating data to make the rich look like Scrooges.
What to do about this shameful corruption of the democratic process? Hmm…
Wait, I got it. A flat tax!
