Here we have a Reuters headlineIRS says rich getting richer: report

Here we have a First State Politics link on the same IRS data The top 1% paid as much in federal income taxes as the bottom 95% combined.

The data showed that the fortunes of the bottom 50 percent of Americans are worsening, with that group earning 12.8 percent of all income in 2005, down from 13.4 percent the year before, the paper said.

Not sure what he is trying to prove but thanks Dave, for reminding us that the rich are getting richer and the Uber rich make so much money that even with all the tax cuts they have recieveed under Bush they still pay more in taxes than 95% of the country.

and in breaking news the Bank of America CEO will make roughly $60,000.00 today.
