    Be sure to read that article carefully, especially the section on the working class.

    Take a look at that pie chart, too -- and figure out who pays the most taxes. If the middle class shrinks, two things come to my mind:

    1. There are more people below the poverty level.
    and
    2. There are fewer people paying the vast majority of taxes in the country.
