33. Yup. That's what I noticed too. Mr. Clinton may not have been as bad as
Reagan-Bush-Bush, but the facts don't lie: the top .01 percent earned 400x the average salary of the "bottom" 90 percent when Clinton took office. That number shot up to above 800x before it settled back down to about 500x at the end of his eight year run.

One can't say that Clinton helped the situation much . . .
