David Cay Johnston: Obama launches tax ploy against GOP State of the Union address pushes tax reforms to set stage for 2016 electoral fight, January 21, 2015 2:00AM ET "The most political law in America is the federal tax code. Far from being grounded in sound economics and the Constitutional duty to promote the general welfare, it’s shaped by influence won with campaign contributions and lobbying. We are about to see just how political tax law is thanks to a savvy move by President Barack Obama to frame the 2016 election in ways that will help Democrats keep the White House. In his State of the Union address, the president proposed a host of tax ideas Republicans have long advocated in order to force them to choose between Main Street and Wall Street... Obama’s proposals would cost $230 billion over ten years — less than $2 billion per month. The cost of this modest tax relief for middle class Americans would be paid by raising taxes at the top by $320 billion — a bit more than $2.6 billion per m ...

Underneath the Propaganda, Americans Are In BAD SHAPE Americans Bounced Back Faster After the Great Depression than the Great Recession by WASHINGTON'S BLOG | JUNE 9, 2014 42 16 0 _ Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Cay Johnston has researched economics, wages, taxes and related issues for many years. He’s written numerous books on those subjects. Writing for the San Jose Mercury News, then serving as a columnist for Reuters, Johnston won his Pulitzer writing on economics and tax issues for the New York Times. President of Investigative Reporters and Editors, Johnson now holds titles such as Distinguished Visiting Lecturer at Syracuse University College of Law and Whitman School of Management. In other words, Johnston is a highly-credible reporter on economic issues. Last week, Johnston headlined at Al Jazeera – the mainstream American press apparently wouldn’t touch the story – “Americans fared better after Great Depression than today“: Coming out of the Great Depression eight decades ago ...

“Bloodiest Thing the World Has Seen”: David Cay Johnston on Inequality’s Looming Disaster The perils of growing inequality. May 22, 2014 | By Elias Isquith Long before anyone knew the name Thomas Piketty, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston was plumbing the hidden depths of the American tax code, revealing the myriad ways it privileges the interests of corporations and the wealthy ahead of those of the 99 percent. Indeed, while it may sometimes feel as if economic inequality is the new trend, Johnston’s career reminds us that the great gulf that separates the rich from the rest in the contemporary United States didn’t happen overnight, but over a course of decades. Despite coming out during the same year as “Capital in the Twenty-First Century,” and “The Divide,” Johnston’s newest release, “Divided: The Perils of Our Growing Inequality,” is a different kind of inequality book. Rather than a sweeping overview of centuries of economic history, or an on-the-ground exa ...
Went to hear the Pulitzer Prize-winning author, David Cay Johnston speak tonight about the effects of income inequality on our country...illuminating and good food for thought.
Compiled by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston, Divided gathers the writings of leading scholars, activists and journalists to provide an illuminating, multifaceted look at inequality. Combining surprising statistical evidence with penetrating new analysis, the contributors explore the devastating implications that income inequality has on areas as diverse as education, justice, healthcare, social mobility and political representation. This is an essential resource for anyone who cares about the future of Western economies. The issue of inequality has irrefutably returned to the fore, riding on the anger against Wall Street following the 2008 financial crisis and the concentration of economic and political power in the hands of the super-rich. The Occupy movement made the plight of the 99 percent an indelible part of the public consciousness, and concerns about inequality were a decisive factor in the 2012 presidential elections. How bad is it? According to Pulitzer Prize-winning journal ...
Was listening to NPR the other day, and they were interviewing David Cay Johnston, a professor at Syracuse University, who lectures on capital gains tax. He described the disparity between the bottom 90% and the top 10% and the top 1% of the top1 of people here in the US. If you look at the average increase in capital gains for the 90% of the little people, it has been a gain of an average of $59 over what it was in 1966. If you made a bar graph, that $59 would be a bar that would be 1 inch tall. Now for the top 10%. Their increase in capital gains (keeping with the same scale $59=1"), would be represented by a bar that was 163 feet tall. The top 1% of the top 1%...their bar would be 4.9 MILES tall. So I guess it's true that the rich keep getting richer and the rest just keep getting poor. Our society NEEDS the middle class. It is foolhardy to think that this disparity won't result in ugly repercussions.

This was my response to a National Memo article written by David Cay it, Johnston correctly excoriates the media for failing to do their jobs, which is to get at and expose the truth. Johnston is a prize-winning economist and a former (I believe) economics professor, and he correctly criticized the media for furthering wealth and income inequality with their abdication of their Fourth Estate responsibility: D.C. Johnston has it correct. The greedy and Fascist GOP Cons use propaganda to fool everybody else in the Republican Party into thinking that hard work will make you rich. "Oh, well, if you work hard and get a little lucky, you can be rich, like us". B*llsh!t... how the rich REALLY get rich is almost always through two factors: inheritance and exploitation. The inheritance part is easy to explain. Many wealthy families these days have been wealthy for decades. That wealth is simply passed down upon the deaths of older family members. The Koch brothers are a great example of this. They wo ...

DAVID CAY JOHNSTON ON THE BUDGET DEAL WHICH PASSED THE HOUSE "The corporate loopholes aren’t being closed. The tax-avoidance techniques of billionaires, who can legally live tax-free if they choose to, are not being shut down. The hedge fund and private equity managers will continue to be advantaged. And we’re going to kick 57,000 poor children out of Head Start, which means we’re going to narrow their economic futures and make all of us worse off in the future. We’re cutting a billion-and-a-half dollars from medical research to save lives. Why? Because the very richest people in America, those who have benefited most from being in this market, don’t want to pay for that kind of services. And by the way, being The War and Peace Report, the Pentagon is getting an extra $20 billion out of this deal. We already spend 42 percent of all the money in the world on our military. More money for the Pentagon? Seriously? While we are cutting off unemployment benefits and cutting medical research, reducing ...

51% Of American Workers Earn Less Than $27,000 A Year... The counties with the three highest median household incomes are all in the Virginia suburbs of Washington. Falls Church led the pack with $113,313 per household, an increase of 17 percent since 2000. The county with the lowest median household income was Owsley, Ky., at $18,869. US household incomes have remained stagnant for the past 40 years even as US productivity has soared. The huge wealth represented by the productivity gains have all gone to the top 2% of US households and particularly to the top half of 1%. Millions of American households have sunk into the working poor because their real wages were not going up at all, even as their cost of living was going up every year (inflation). To compensate for employers refusing to share productivity gains with their employees by raising their wages, congress and presidents starting with Gerald Ford in the 1970’s added deductions to the tax code such as the Earned Income Credit (EIC) and Child Ta ...
By passing Rape Insurance, Republicans in Michigan have indicated that they care about intrusive government, not small government. It also suggests they're fine with government assisting in regulating the insurance marketplace (so I guess they like ObamaCare now). And I love the point David Cay Johnston made. There are men who testify about their wives/partners' experiences of rape & their choice to get an abortion in their life or not to. The media, however, only focuses on women giving testimony, which only adds further 'exploitation' of women to the public debate - not full 'explanation'.
It's too bad too. David Cay Johnston is one smart guy.

ARE FAST FOOD WORKERS WORSE OFF THAN SERVANTS 100 YEARS AGO? - Laura Clawson. 1) David Cay Johnston argues they're worse off than the servants of 100 years ago. Take the fast food worker of 2013 and the family cook of 1913. On paper, today's full-time fast food worker earns a little more than the standard 1913 wage. But the 1910 cook earned tax-free pay, while 2013 cook pays income taxes on his pay, assuming full-time work every week of the year. 2) Unless he can walk to work, today’s (fast food worker) and outsourced family cook must cover commuting costs which eats up a third to almost half of his pay. 3) The 1910 cook got room and board, while the 2013 cook must provide his own living space and food. 4) Fast food restaurants are filled with part-time workers without job security. 5) Effectively, fast food workers are making barely more than the domestic workers were making when their pay didn't have to cover rent or commuting in what we now think of as the bad old days of no labour protection. 6) Fas ...

We just landed Pulitzer Prize winning reporter David Cay Johnston as a guest on Carson's Corner this Tuesday, December 17th, at 4pm est. David has written several books on how the wealthy and corporations use the government to their advantage, while you and I have no such luxury and spend money out of our pockets subsidizing their profits. We here at Carson's Corner have been citing Mr. Johnston's work for several years now. It has literally changed the way I look at government; and carries such an important message, that I feel obligated as a citizen to be a messenger. It is a great honor to have one of our most esteemed guests on the show right before the end of the year. Aside from his work, what also makes Mr. Johnston unique is the fact that he was incredibly easy to work with. Men of his stature are not always so accommodating.

The fast-increasing use of tax incentives by all 50 states has failed to increase jobs or investment, two respected experts on state tax policy found after reviewing more than 50 years of giveaways. Author(s): David Cay Johnston
"The blanket dissemination of the ideology of free market capitalism through the media and the purging, especially in academia, of critical voices have permitted our oligarchs to orchestrate the largest income inequality gap in the industrialized world. The top 1 percent in the United States own 40 percent of the nation’s wealth while the bottom 80 percent own only 7 percent, as Joseph E. Stiglitz wrote in “The Price of Inequality.” For every dollar that the wealthiest 0.1 percent amassed in 1980 they had an additional $3 in yearly income in 2008, David Cay Johnston explained in the article “9 Things the Rich Don’t Want You to Know About Taxes.” The bottom 90 percent, Johnson said, in the same period added only one cent. Half of the country is now classified as poor or low-income. The real value of the minimum wage has fallen by $2.77 since 1968. Oligarchs do not believe in self-sacrifice for the common good. They never have. They never will. They are the cancer of democracy." Chris Hedges
