ABSTRACT
This article argues against U.S. presidential candidate Al Gore's criticism of George W.. Bush's tax cuts plan for the top 1 percent wealthy U.S. citizens. The article reveals the group who belongs to the top 1 percent. It offers a portrait of these individuals and looks at how they got that way. According to U.S. Congress's Joint Committee on Taxation, the top 1 percent are those with cash income, taxable capital gains, and employee benefits adding up to more than $296,828 per year. This article outlines the main reasons why some U.S. families earn more than others and looks at why some make it to the top 1 percent.
