'The study comes from the Congressional Budget Office and is based on IRS and Census Bureau data.
It finds that after-tax income for the top 1 percent of U.S. households almost tripled, up 275 percent, from 1979 to 2007. For people in the middle of the economic scale, after-tax income grew by just 40 percent.'

The claim that 'Obama' has 'created' class warefare is foolish.

As Obama has been President for 3 years...

and the class warefare has been going on, for around 30 years.

Pagan,
who started the wall street bailout? the democrats in congress

The DEM controlled congress (including senator BO) passed TARP legislation BEFORE bush could sign it.

But that is not what really started and emphasized class warfare. That has been the sole purview of the DNC, as they done for 30 years, as you point out. BO has just raised the temperature for lurely political reasons.

Who profited from the bush tax cuts?
The top rates were cut by 460 basis points, the lowest rates by 500 basis points. So the LOWEST taxpayers got a relatively bigger boost, especially when you consider that the $500 increase in the per child tax credit (NOT reltaed to rates) had a relatively LARGER impact on those with lower incomes than those with higher incomes.

So in a succinct answer to your question about who profited from the bush tax cuts? the lower income earners, by far.

Thanks for reminding us how poor a job BO has done, since the poor hit their largest percentage of the population during his term.

WHERE, are you getting this information? :)

Your claims are nice to look at, but until you present source, are likely based soely on your opinion.

Blaming Obama for the 'Financial meltdown' of 2008, Bush's LAST year in office...is hardly accurate.

While your at it, why not 'Blame Obama' for the war in Iraq, Afghanistan Egypt and Germany?

Just yesterday I had someone claim it was 'Obama's' EPA...

even when that program was started in 1970 by NIXON!

Republican leadership DOUBLED the national debt. Just 3 years ago.

And at least I used the Congressional Budget Office as a source.

Good day to you, Lost.

Pagan,
I posted my sources before; just because you ignored them does not mean I will look them up again. Look up the tax cuts of 2001 and you will see ALL taxpayers had their rates cut; the highest by 460 bp, the lowest by 500 bp. I know that is inconsistent with your erroneous belief, but that is your problem, not mine.

if you need a source for a commonly known fact: 2+2=4 Prentiss Hall, 1st grade math text.

NO, you did NOT use the CBO as a source, you used an AP article that referenced the CBO.

Please tell me where I blamed BO for the 2008 meltdown - nice misstatement.

You mean to say that BO has done NOTHING with the EPA, that he has NO control over it and that it is all Nixon's? I guess by that logic the Army is still under the control of George Washington.

No, as long as BO is president, it is HIS EPA, HIS Justince Dept, HIS DOE, etc, etc.

bush's deficits were larger with dem congresses than repub, and BO has increased the debt MORE in 3 years than bush in 8.

good day to you
