Rotondaro on Income Inequality

At Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, Fred Rotondaro lays out the big picture on income inequality. I wish he had been on CNN last night. They had someone from the Wall Street Journal who made the point, factually correct but grossly misleading without context, that the wealthy have been paying a great and greater share of federal taxes in recent decades. He failed to note what Rotondaro points out - they are paying more because they have garnered almost all of the income growth in hte past thirty years. The middle class is not paying more because they are not making more.
