Last week, the Wall Street Journal ran an article written by Scott Hodge of the Tax Foundation. If we want true income equality, according to Mr. Hodge, income would have to be taken from the top 40 percent of income earners and distributed to the bottom 60 percent. So redistribution is not just limited to confiscating from the top 1 percent. $1.5 trillion is already distributed in benefits from the top 40 percent but total income equality would require an additional $2.5 trillion to be transferred from the this income group. So for the remaining upper 39 percent who are wringing their hands over income inequality: are you willing to pay up?
