Thursday, October 20, 2005I was always sceptical that the Hurricane Katrina would lead to any real anti-poverty programs. It didn't take much time for the whole issue to be forgotten. Now we have more evidence that the Class War being waged by the wealthy on the rest of America is continuing. Kevin Drum has a handy chart explaining how the President's tax commission screws over the middle class. He admits that there are some proposals whose effects he is unsure about. Worry not Kevin - they stick it to the working people too. In addition, Hale Stewart at BOP has a horrifying but predictable statistic that college students with higher incomes are more likely to graduate than poorer students who have the same test scores. So much for the meritocracy.
