So it’s funny how she failed to mention the remaining 2%-19% of the people that control 50% of the wealth.
Guess where Jan falls in to... that’s right, the 2%-19% Net worth $417,000 (2007)
"Who going to benefit, and who’s going to suffer."
The lazier liberal will benefit. Who’s going to suffer? Job creators.
So let’s break this down.
The top 1% of Americans, millionaires/billionaires, are at the top of the heap.
The 2-19%, which she never talked about because she falls in to that category, wants to tax the top 1% at a higher rate (Wonder what happened to all the $250K+ talk from the left?)... For what?
To make them suffer losses, to bring them down to the level of rest of the 80%... Elevating the 2-19% to the top of the heap.
Now, according to Professor G Williams Domhoff of the UofC Santa Cruz:
"the top 1% of income earners, who average over $1 million a year, actually pay a smaller percentage of their incomes to taxes than the 9% just below them."
So is this an agenda to re-distribute the wealthiest income to the middle class and poor?
OR is this bitterness by the 2-19% that they pay more in over all taxes then the top 1%?
Take a look

Top 19%- 50%
Rest 80%- 15%

Looks like Jan forgot about herself in interview with a Russian TV reporter.
