Mother Jones has come out with some great charts that show the vast differences in Americans’ incomes these days: It’s the inequality, stupid. As the article points out:
A huge share of the nation’s economic growth over the past 30 years has gone to the top one-hundredth of one percent, who now make an average of $27 million per household. The average income for the bottom 90 percent of us? $31,244.
It’s a pretty safe bet that anyone who opposes closing that gigantic gap is in that one-hundredth of one percent.
