And, as it says, this is the first time this has happened: that THE very richest people (top 400) had THE very lowest effective total tax rate of any taxed group.

So, saying that wasn't so three years ago is an entirely non sequitur supposed rebuttal, that has no rebuttal power to it. As in, zero relevancy whatsoever. What, did you think it was some kind of powerful refutal or something?
Sure it does.
It provides perspective.

Some people would snivel about the tax rate for the wealthy being to little if it were at 100%.

It is always entertaining to see jealousy raise its ugly head.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.
