A System Rigged to Benefit the Rich and Powerful: an Example:

Robert Reich is tireless in compiling statistics that expose the
plutocrat-tilted character of our nation’s tax and subsidy policy. For example, he reported the other day that people making twenty million dollars a year only have social security taxes withheld for a few days before they have reached the cap, but ordinary workers have taxes withheld for the antire year. This morning, he reported that in 41 out of 50 US states, the richest one percent pay at a lower tax rate than any other income group. So it is that the rich get ever richer and the super rich get ever super richer.
