Paul Krugman: If The Bush Tax Cuts Are Extended, Then It's Time To Lose All Faith In America's Future http://nyti.ms/b1LRSs "Otherwise, it will be hard not to lose all faith in America’s future".

"And where would this $680 billion go? Nearly all of it would go to the richest 1
percent of Americans, people with incomes of more than $500,000 a year. But
that’s the least of it: the policy center’s estimates say that the majority of
the tax cuts would go to the richest one-tenth of 1 percent. Take a group of
1,000 randomly selected Americans, and pick the one with the highest income;
he’s going to get the majority of that group’s tax break. And the average tax
break for those lucky few — the poorest members of the group have annual incomes
of more than $2 million, and the average member makes more than $7 million a
year — would be $3 million over the course of the next decade."

"Ja mihin tämä 680 miljardia dollaria menisi? Lähes kaikki menisi rikkaimmalle 1 prosentille amerikkalaisista, ihmisille, joiden tulot ovat yli 500000 dollaria vuodessa. Otetaan ryhmä, 1000 satunnaisesti valittua amerikkalaista - köyhimmän ryhmän vuositulot olisivat yli 2 miljoonaa dollaria, ja keskimääräinen jäsen tienaa yli 7.000.000 dollaria vuodessa olisivat verovähennyksen kohteena.
