One Percenters

Well, I think it’s time to make sure “the wealthiest among us” pay their “fair share,” don’t you? I just heard about a married couple in the top 1 percent who paid only 18.4 percent on their joint income of $608,611. Courtesy of nameless underlings, they get free transportation, free lodging, regular parties and other galas, a vacation every month, and more golf than Tiger Woods. What makes it worse, they keep advocating tax hikes on everyone else.

What? You say these evil one percenters are the president and First Lady?

Never mind.
