They do not comprise a majority of the one percent. If you look at how their finances are structured you will find LLCs, Partnerships, and in my case C corps. ect.. All those vehicles allow you and they to SPEND the money BEFORE taxation. They are taxed only on profit. If they even have a profit. Thats my point. There are VERY few true employees in the one percent. They generally have CONTROL of how much tax they are going to pay, by how they structure their investment vehicles and businesses. If you look at doctors accountants ect. you find most in partnerships and or llc's. They are taxed in all of these vehicles on NET profit not the GROSS. Where as an employee the government gets first crack. The key is control or the lack thereoff.
