Ahh, the red-herring of characterizing the issue only in terms of income — yes, I concede it is improperly mislabeled — versus wealth.

Ahh….it’s not red herring at all, since income feeds wealth. That said, when you have a discussion about tax rates, then you’re by definition talking about income. “Wealth’ becomes an entirely different conversation.

All the “data points” in the universe are not going to change the irrefutable fact that there has been a massive transference of wealth — in terms of asset ownership — over the past 35 years to the top 1%. Worldwide.

And nobody tried to argue otherwise, because as you say, it’s an “irrefutable fact”.

The discussion over the reason WHY.

But nice try…

If you think I was arguing otherwise, then you really have some sort of reading comprehension problem.
