  •  I stumbled on across that sight looking for (0+ / 0-)

    tax rate and social security spending information.  It didn't take me long to figure out it was fitting data to a narrative.  I ended up bypassing it and going to the IRS sites.  I'm really surprised Nate (or anyone else who considers themselves serious about numbers) would use it, especially when the raw data is easily available with just a little more digging.

    To any wingnut: If you pay my taxes I'll give you a job.
