In which Hank takes on some fascinatingly boring stuff about the U.S. tax code, what sorts of incomes there are, how tax brackets work, and why rich people pay a substantially lower tax rate than most people in America.

And then he makes some value judgements and expresses some opinions which are not necessarily the opinions of his brother, and are obviously the opinions of a guy who is not an economist. But really? It just doesn't seem fair.
