     Tip to MediaMatters for linking to this NBER report which includes the following graph.  Note that the data series ends in 2000, and undoubtedly GW Bush has pushed things much, much more.  This is a measure of the total amount of all income the top .01% (one hundreth of one percent) income earners are earning.  The legend on the left reads "Share (in %) excluding capital gains"
