By the numbers

Since I once worked at Marketplace, let's do the numbers (thanks, Harper's):
  • Percentage of the current U.S. debt that was accumulated during Republican presidential terms: 71
  • Percentage of profits American corporations paid in taxes in 1961: 40.6
  • Today: 10.5
  • Percentage of U.S. college grades that are A's: 43
  • Percentage of Americans in a July poll who said they approve of God's job performance: 52
