Rising Tide Seems Rather Slack

I posted at Captain Plaid a response to today's Washington Post opinion piece on the twenty five year plus gap of the haves and have nots. Kimble Forrister of Alabama Arise claims just today, in a perhaps last ditch effort to accomplish meaningful tax reform at the state level, that "The top one-fifth of Alabama earners have enjoyed 60 percent income growth in the last 20 years." Unfortunately I expect Goat Hill stays in line with those 130,000 Big Mules making over $100K per year rather than the 1.1 million Alabamians that earn less. They've learned to take care of the ones what brung them. Peace ... or War!
