Billionaires paid lower tax rate than working class for first time in US history: study

Billionaires paid less in taxes than the working class last year for the first time in U.S. history, a study found.

Economists Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman found in their book-length study "The Triumph of Injustice" that the average tax rate paid by the richest 400 families in the country was lower than the rate paid by the bottom half of American households in 2018, The Washington Post reported.

Fun, huh? Yo Republicans, this one's on you. You're the ones who keep electing the robber barons to lead the country.

Most of the taxable income earned by billionaires come to them on the form of capital gains. The top capital gains tax rate is 20%.

But, but, they're the job creators. As Dr. Leonard McCoy once said "In a pig's eye."
