Fuzzy Math Returns!
Jon Chait has a low tolerance for morons. In this case, former Bush press flack Ari Fleischer, who is seemingly unaware that 60 > 40, 31 > 30, and 37 > 31. Such are the mathematical contortions one needs to make in order to argue that our tax system actually fleeces the rich. I'd chide the Wall Street Journal for publishing such tripe, except that after their infamous "lucky duckies" editorial (the ducks, in the WSJ's opinion, are the impoverished Americans who don't pay taxes), I don't think they have any standards I could possibly appeal to.
