1. I love the way they stretch to attribute corporate taxes to

taxes paid on capital gains so that they get a tax rate of 100% on income never seen. Pretty clever. Same with federal excise tax. Then they exclude negative incomes from the lowest income quintile but include them in the totals.
I notice that the perks given to the highest earners are not part of their income but medicaid and medicare are part of income.
They allow the wealthy to defer any amount of capital gains and if they don't convert it to cash, it doesn't count as income.
