I looked on the New York times website and found an article from Feb, 13 2015, “States Consider Increasing Taxes for the Poor and Cutting Them for the Affluent”. I read the article and was shocked that the rich, who have more wealth than more than America practically combined, feel that they are being taxed too heavily and want even more money from those who have none. “If the top 1 percent were taxed at such rates, the revenue would be $68 billion…and that would be almost 10 times the amount needed to restore five years’ worth of cuts to higher education…” I tweeted Professor Blum information from the article that was astonishing to me.
