Income Distribution In U.S.

This chart from Think Progress shows how unfair the income distribution is in the United States. Only 10% of the country actually get to live out the "American Dream", and even among that 10% only one percent controls most of the wealth and income. "Trickle-down" is obviously just a lie to keep the masses from revolting.

  1. socialist moron. if it were not for the top 10% creating all the wealth then the bottom 90% would be living under a tree.

  2. The wealth is not created by the top 10%, but by the bottom 90% through there labor. The top 10% just get rich off the labor of others and don't really produce anything of value.
