because the graphic is meant to represent the increased income.
antelope saidHang the top 25 hedgefund managers on pay per view, distribute their stolen assets to everyone else.

RST2009 saidThat 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.

StoneColdChad84 saidWhat 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 (38% on most of that $1 million plus amount, by the way) 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.
