  1. The man raves. He babbles. As do most of his sources. It would take a couple pages of text per paragraph to refute it all, but here's a simple test: We Can Double the Income of 94 Million Workers, from $30,000 to $60,000? Ok... umm... how much is 94 million x $30K? $2.82 Trillion, or $260,000,000,000 more than the IRS collected in 2007, the last year I can find firm numbers on.

  2. Are you including Dean Baker and the Tax Policy Center in the sources that rave?

    I do wish the guy would use links instead of bad type tricks to call attention to things.

    Mostly, I like his point that if we just redistribute the gains that the rich have gotten since Reagan, the rest of us will be much better off. Though I think we need to do more than that, because the '70s and '80s were good times for the middle class, but not such great times for the working class.
