Americans tend to have a distorted picture of the reality of income distribution in this country.
A Harvard business prof and a behavioral economist recently asked more than 5,000 Americans how they thought wealth is distributed in the United States. Most thought that it’s more balanced than it actually is. Asked to choose their ideal distribution of wealth, 92% picked one that was even more equitable.
And on the idea of "shared sacrifice," lets look at who's picking up the tab on taxes.

Nah, its all the fault of those greedy teachers. < snark >
