Steve Benen's "Winners and Losers in Romney's Tax Plan" chart -- with top 0.1% included

Steve Benen put out a chart today which showed the "Winners and Losers in Romney's Tax Plan". But he had to leave off the top 0.1% because:

...it made the chart unreadable. If you're in the bottom 80%, your tax increase under Romney would range from $128 to $1,880, but if you're in the top 0.1%, your tax break would be worth nearly a quarter of a million dollars.


So for anyone who is curious to know what the chart would look like if you included the top 0.1%, here it is. (The x-axis is your income percentile, and the y-axis is the dollar amount that your taxes would go up or down under Romney's plan.)

3. People like Romney feel that they are fully

entitled to the fruits of your labor.

8. The odd thing is that his supporters also feel that he's entitled to the fruits of your labor

...and theirs!

It's just incomprehensible.

15. I tell his supporters

That if it should come to pass that Romney gets in and they end up eating dogfood to stay alive, at least they got what they voted for!

7. That is obscene. As I keep saying, people who vote for Romney are stupid.

Unless of course, they're in the top 0.1%.

or even over the last 30-40 years, or so.

21. I am not getting the entire chart .. Help

Unfortunately, I am sitting in the Starbucks that doesn't want to install a better wifi, that provides for more bandwidth, so downloads are poor. Is this for-real or just hyperbole on the OPs part(?) .. I don't get the Forbes graft either. Always the skeptic here.

Ive never been hired by a poor person so I don't see a problem with the wealthy job creators getting a break, they do pay the majority of taxes anyway

26. You real have no idea as to how the economy works

Giving more money to rich people, at the expense of everyone else is how we got this screwed up situation in the first place.

Eat your Wheaties, fella.
