The wealthiest 1% of Americans earned 21.2% of all income in 2005, according to new data from the Internal Revenue Service.
The bottom 50% earned 12.8% of all income
So if we had 100 people, representing the various income class groups, and they had to split up 1 million dollars.
Paris Hilton would get $212,000.00
The unknown people who work for a living, running day care centers, working at Target, putting out fires etc, well, they get 2,560 each.
Yet, Paris and her friends are the ones who need all the tax breaks, welcome to Bush land, where the rich get richer, and the poor are expendable.
