    Shall we have a bet how long it takes southbeach to chime in about how you can't tax the rich because they are the producers and a poor person never gave anyone a job? Or will he spout off about how many people pay 0 federal tax (but ignore that people making over a certain amount don't pay payroll tax).

    I can't wait to wake up tomorrow morning to see the flame war that ensues. Come on SMART RJ'ers, be prepared to issue smackdown of dumb (disproven) conservative fiscal ideas!

    That it is designed to be inflammatory.

    The hedge fund managers pay the same rate of tax on the first $55k that everyone else does, and the same rate on the amount from $55k to $168k that the Dr does, and the legally defined rate on the remainder to the $1b total. Good thing for society these 25 guys paid $150m in tax to support Obamas socialist regime. 25 Dr's would only contribute about $1m.

    Note that the chart represents the rate of tax on the last dollar earned.

    Hang the top 25 hedgefund managers on pay per view, distribute their stolen assets to everyone else.

    because the graphic is meant to represent the increased income.

    Wow! According to that statistic, it would take the combined earning power of 214,344 firemen to hose down the earnings on the 25 top hedge fund managers. That's roughly the population of Lubbock, TX. Or Saskatoon, SK for my Canadian brothers. That's also a hell of a lot of firemen.

    You gotta put your glasses on for this one.

    the little asterisk in the bottom right states it's the marginal rate taxed over the last dollar, so not the entire 1,013,200,000 is taxed at 15%.

    The choice of occupations for the left side of the graph is also interesting, all public sector (in most countries other than the US) and traditionally used in hollow election promises.

    It's lefty propaganda

    What a crock of s...

    It misleadingly says "as low as 15%"... Crazy! "15%" just so happens to be the exact tax rate on long-term capital gains from the sale of stock (something a hedge fund manager does, right?), not an ordinary income tax rate like the other little green graphs are showing.

    The unnamed hedge fund manager would be paying his regular tax rate (35% on most of that $1 billion plus amount, by the way, and 39.6% starting in 2011) on any ordinary income he earned from commissions of selling other people's stock, and he would only pay 15% on capital gains that he got for selling own personal, long-term stock. Any short term capital gains, he'd pay the ordinary, higher income tax rates.

    Propaganda FAIL...

    (Edit: To correct 35% & 39.6% rates and "billion")

    A better representation i think would have been CEO, Nurse, Engineer, Sales clerk... the first three are just fucking stupid to use... all three are within a few thousand dollars of eachother... that said, i believe in a completely flat tax AFTER a set amount determined by number in household. not before a number, thats fucking stupid.
