Thom Hartmann: Secrets the Rich don't Want You to Know

The real numbers are displayed graphically on charts for years before Regan and after Regan.

Numbers are from David_Cay_Johnston. Johnston is the author of best-selling books on tax and economic policy, the most recently published of which is Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense and Stick You With The Bill, about hidden subsidies, rigged markets, and corporate socialism. It follows his earlier book Perfectly Legal: The Covert Campaign to Rig Our Tax System to Benefit the Super Rich—and Cheat Everybody Else, a New York Times bestseller[4] on the U.S. tax system that won the Investigative Reporters and Editors 2003 Book of the Year award

Johnston's first book, Temples of Chance: How America Inc. Bought Out Murder Inc. to Win Control of the Casino Business is an account of how, in the 1980s, the junk-bond kings usurped mob control of the casino industry. The book discusses corruption in the industry and the role of the U.S. government in that corruption.

Johnston received the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting "for his penetrating and enterprising reporting that exposed loopholes and inequities in the U.S. tax code, which was instrumental in bringing about reforms." He was a finalist in 2003 "for his stories that displayed exquisite command of complicated U.S. tax laws and of how corporations and individuals twist them to their advantage." He was also a finalist in 2000 "for his lucid coverage of problems resulting from the reorganization of the Internal Revenue Service."[5]
