EconomyFinancePolitics A Chart of the Tax Deal by Drea Knufken December 21, 2010, 7:00 am 19 Views Share2 Share4 Tweet5 Pin Stumble From the White House, no less: Here’s a chart found on The American depicting the proportion of taxes the top earners in the US pay, barring any fancy accounting using C-corporations, I assume. Hat tip to Roark: Share2 Share4 Tweet5 Pin Stumble Written by Drea Knufken Currently, I create and execute content- and PR strategies for clients, including thought leadership and messaging. I also ghostwrite and produce press releases, white papers, case studies and other collateral. Leave A Comment Roark: I’m not sure what a “socialist useful idiot” is, but I do like the idea of also posting a chart illustrating the proportion of taxes paid by the wealthiest Americans. I added it below the first chart. Just wondering…could you please post a chart which shows the percentage of taxes paid by the top 1%, the top 5% and top 10%. Why does a socialist useful idiot have a blog called Business Pundit?
