The landscape of American income

Via the excellent Catherine Mulbrandon, a visual representation of the income distribution in America. Though, as it should always be noted in regard to some economic statistics, this picture likely looks different today thanks to the Great Recession.

I bring this up as relevant to yesterday’s post on low income voting – wherein I would add that it seems disingenuous to promote policies that primarily benefit the left side of this graph while touting it to the right side.
