5. Krugman is such a tool

and probably a member of the top 5%

"Meanwhile, ATRA raises taxes relative to a continuation of the Bush high-end tax cuts: after-tax income down 4.5 percent for the 1-percenters, 6.2 percent for the top 0.1 percent."


Because the real fact is

"Meanwhile ATRA CUTS taxes relative to the EXPIRATION of the motherfucking goddam Bush tax cuts"

after tax incomes UP 2.3% for the 1 percenters, and UP 3.2% for the 4 percenters.

It's not a rollback of those people's huge gains - it is a permanent continuation of them.

$1.3 trillion in tax cuts for the top 5%
$370 billion for the bottom 40%

ATRA is INCREASING inequality and Krugman should fucking know it.
