    Third income quartile $44,740 per household (0%)
    Bottom income quartile $9,960 per household (+5%)
    Im not saying I agree or disagree with you but where do you get that information. I looked up the 2009 census information and found that those disagree.

    Real median household income was $49,777 in 2009 a decline from the previous year and off over 5% from 1999 (the peak)
    The median earnings of all workingmales 15 years old and over was $36,331 in 2009

    we are dealing with an interesting strain of libertarianism I suspect.

    income redistributive libertarian.

    sort of like Christ isn't divine Roman Catholicism?
