Instead of calling for the U.S. government to impose a “wealth tax” and more bureaucracies?
Better yet, why don’t these 1 percent of the 1 percent give away their money to food banks to end hunger in America and make Americans healthier? Why don’t they buy everyone electric cars to solve the climate crisis? Why don’t they repair our crumbling road and bridge infrastructure? Why don’t they give every child a voucher to attend the school of his choice? Why don’t they build new schools where there are no good ones? Why don’t they give all the people who are unemployed jobs at their companies or foundations? Why don’t they pay for everyone to go to college? Why don’t they subsidize companies so that they can give all their low-wage workers a raise to $15 an hour? To improve health outcomes, why don’t they build more hospitals and clinics and pay the salaries of doctors and nurses to staff them? Why don’t they build housing for the homeless?
Why give your money to the government so the government can inefficiently and wastefully do these things (assuming that the government will actually do them) after government bureaucrats take their cut?
