Here’s a Map of How Much You’d Have to Make To Be Among the 1% in Your State

By Jill Bond

Last week I brought to you a map of the wealthiest person in each state.

This time I have a map, thanks to the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), of what you have to make in one year to be in the richest one percent of people in your state.

The EPI published a report on Monday looking at income inequality by state, and their findings showed that all 50 states have experienced a lopsided and widening gap in the income inequality of the top 1 percent in recent decades.

And unfortunately the Great Recession wasn’t much of leveler: The top 1 percent recovered by leaps and bounds — their income has grown by 36.8 percent, while the bottom 99 percent’s income has actually gone down in the so-called recovery that began in 2009.

The report found that, nationally, the top 1 percent of taxpayers earned 28.7 times as much income as the bottom 99 percent in 2012.

Why is Obama a failure for cutting the deficit by 60%, dropping the unemployment by 40%, and dropping the uninsured rate by 28%? #CPACQ

So if you’re bored at work or just need to vent at a bunch of right wing haters, go on over to twitter.com and type in #cpacq and show ‘em how we do it on the progressive left.
