So let's see here. Since 86, the top 1% consolidated near 100% times their wealth, from 11% to 20%. Who was in charge in the 80's? Oh yes, Ronald Reagan. If we kept the same ratio under Reagan today, the top 1% would be paying 47% of all the taxes. But the 2008 taxes show 38%, down from the 40% you keep quoting BTW. So they're almost 10% below Reagan era.
So...where the **** are our jobs? That's the payout right? But instead, we see the wealth gap widen even more as the top keep consolidating power. Economic mobility is shut down, the laws are made to profit the ones at top at the expense of those at the bottom.
What you fail to understand is the top one or 5% is not a static group
and I am waiting for you to tell us what it would mean if the rich were not getting any richer.
