Politics aside, this is a really well done PDF of infographics by the White House to accompany President Obama’s, “American Jobs Act,” speech on September 8th, 2011.
I would be interested to see the accuracy of the claims on Buffet’s secretary’s income as well as the proposed tax on the $50,000 – $100,000 range. Also, the percentages quoted are rather muddy. Buffet was calculating payroll contributions, which obviously skews the number considering he doesn’t contribute payroll tax on capital gains (just his $100,000 salary)
Frankly, I don’t think it is the lack of money that the wealthy are contributing, it has everything to do with the percentage of people that pay nothing…most of them getting a refund. Do all American’s justice by publishing realistic non-partisan, non-campaign reports. Who knows, maybe the exodus of Democrats and Republicans to Independent would slow…
Killer graphics on the keynote, if there is one thing that politicians are getting right, it’s hiring the right talent to sell their BS.
