  •  My point is, the 90% percentile band (3+ / 0-)

    isn't the "highest level". People in the 90% percentile still work for a living - they're doctors, lawyers, engineers, etc. Even the 99 %ile are still people working for a living - a household with two engineers in a major metropolitan area will easily pull that.

    The "highest level" is the 99.9 %ile and above - the investment class and corporate executive class (not necessarily the same thing). They don't do the same under Republicans - they do vastly, vastly better.

    They're the ones funding the think tanks and doing the fundraisers that make much of the 99% and below think conservatism is good for them.
