Obama might agree that this is true, but only because the income share of the top earners has climbed so much. But Treasury Department data contradict this argument: the top 10 percent received about 46 percent of the income in 2000 and about 47.3 percent in 2006. The number may well have declined again after that. So the tax share of the rich has gone up a lot more since 2000 than their income share has.
