Jamie Dimon gets it wrong on taxes
Jamie Dimon had some interesting comments at a financial industry conference yesterday.
These final notes: Yesterday on the way out I played you a bit of tape from Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan Chase, in which he said, basically, don't blame the rich for being successful.
The bit I didn't play for you was where he complained about how much tax he pays. "Most of us wage-earners are paying 39.6 percent in taxes."
Mmmm, no. Top marginal tax rate right now? Thirty-five percent, which you'd figure a banker would know.
