The rich are paying more taxes under President Bush...

Richest 20 percent of Americans paid 68 percent of all income tax collected in 2005, 3 percent higher than when President Bush took office. For comparison, the same group only paid 57 percent in 1979...

The old phrase "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer" tends to make that little pie chart a fact of life.

Put another way, Households which make $231K pretax income [which covers many two income two profession families] all the way up to Gates and Buffet are in that top 20% of households.
