Everybody seen this graph...?
A guy is posting on a newspaper thread that it was "disproved".

I don't like to claim anything unless I know it's clean. Otherwise, I'd be like "them".

Anybody hear anything about this graph being debunked?

1. I been debunked many times.

Best for comments to have there own credibility. If the graph doesn't source the information, then think twice on it.

Once you give someone credibility you start believing something without thinking.

Then again I never really wanted people to believe me.

2. Here's where it came from

The Center on Budget Policy and Priorities. Don't know much about them, but it's there.

3. According to this,
The Heritage Foundation disputes some of the conclusions.

The graph has been disputed but not disproved.

5. I thought Rachel had this on her show. She seems to be very accurate
when it comes to things like this.


I would ask for where/how this was debunked.
