It’s no secret that the middle class has been hard-hit in recent years. So now democrats are starting to campaign for “Income Equality”, which blames the rich and typically promotes additional taxes in the pretense of aiding the poor at the expense of the rich. That seems appealing to many, except that liberal democrat policies actually end up taxing the middle class while helping the super-rich — especially when the super-rich are political donors to democrats in office. These charts below show this in action. There is a remarkable correspondence to high income inequality vis-a-vis Democrat control in districts and states.
