Ryan Opposes Millionaires' Tax; His Home County Constituents Pull In About $12 Hourly

To help find Paul Ryan's hometown millionaire constituency, I put some data over at The Political Environment.
Annual  per capita income in Rock County, where Janesville is located: $24,135.

Unemployment in the County: 10%.
There are roughly 2,080 hours in a working year, so wages in Rock County average a tad under $12 an hour.

Probably not too many local millionaires there banging down Ryan's door for a tax break and a glass of $350 wine.
