    I believe Catawba wants to raise taxes on the rich, not the successful. Success in life has nothing to do with money.

    Could you please provide a breakdown with regards to the Bush tax cuts as far as how much went to the "wealthy" and how much went to everyone else?

    The Good Reverend isn't "blessed" at all. Hard work, smart decisions, and a savvy for getting things done..... In this regard, I am not blessed at all.

    As we have seen first hand through the last 30 years, there was no qualification to be successful, or even to produce jobs or invest in this country, to get your tax cut. The only stipulation was that your income be over a certain amount. It actually would have made some sense to provide tax cuts to only those that invest in new jobs or businesses in this country, but that was not the case.

    Once again, who isn't compromising?
    The republicans, who won't vote for lifting the debt ceiling unless the bill includes spending cuts

    No, it is completely true. The dems have offered $3 in spending cuts for every $1 of "revenue enhancements"

    Erod, I hate to say this, but liblady is correct. The American people, by and large, are irresponsible people. They do not spend their own money within their means. That are sadly up to their eyeballs in debt. And, they have not saved enough money for retirement. Frugality, self-discipline, self-sufficiency, and personal responsiblity are no longer the AMERICAN way. And, our Congressmen are no different. It's truly a sad state of affairs, but liblady is correct.

    There is no "eroding financial position" - it's made slight gains, but has been more or less stagnant for decades.

    And, while Piketty and Saez lead you around with that ring in your nose and work you all up on Bush and those money-hungry Republicans... you might want to extend that chart back another eight years, when the top 10% (not the top 0.01%) saw an increase on the order of 80%. If you're concerned about income inequality, why the hell are you looking at 2000-06?
    Wrong again. The chart clearly shows the bottom 90% losing out
