    What a biased chart! Does it mean high-income people are not workers? Everything about it says the Democrats are out to give money to “hard workers”, while the Republicans are looking for favors for “fat cats”, who apparently just sit around and count their gold.

    Of course, if one were to presume that the accelerated write-off of capital expense (no depreciation, just straightaway deduction) and the payroll tax foregone were to benefit the investors and employers as much if not more than workers / employees, then the balance become blue ~ 100bln and red ~ 250bln. Nothing is good nor bad but thinking makes it so… Shakespeare, Hamlet from Hamlet Act 2, scene 2, 239–251
