Richest Are Leaving Even the Rich Far Behind

Read this article in the NY Times and you tell me.

DavidNYC has a diary posted on it: Meanwhile, the top 0.1% (in other words, the top thousandth of all taxpayers, 145,000 in all) reap an astonishing 15% of the Bush tax cuts. These folks all earn at least $1.6 million a year, so I can see why they really needed these tax cuts. And that's not even counting the money they have stashed away in tax shelters. Yeesh.
