Another useless fact...

"The top 1 percent of earners in the United States saw their average household incomes grow a whopping 279 percent from 1979 to 2007, according to a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) study (PDF) published this week.
For the lowest earners, what the CBO described as the poorest fifth of America, average incomes grew just 18 percent in that same period. The middle class — comprised of about three-fifths of Americans — saw incomes grow about 40 percent."

Useless? Sure. These facts are published time after time and still the ignorant want to vote for republicans. Remember the 'Trickle down effect' that was promised in exchange for lower taxes on the wealthy? You can see by the numbers above just how much of a trickle we got. And they want to do it again! Unbelievable!
