Wouldn't be easier to just write our checks directly to the rich?

I can sort of see a government program where us "lucky duckies" (if you spend more than 30 seconds trying to figure out which bag of beans is a nickel cheaper at the grocery store, you're probably one of us.) go ahead and sponsor a rich person, much like those programs where you can sponsor a child overseas for a dollar a day. Except in this case, it would be mandatory, it would be something more like $10 a day, and each top tax bracket family would need a bare minimum of 1,000 of us to sponsor them. You know, to keep it to a "fair" scale based on income. If we complained, we would be accused of class warfare. Limbaugh would point out that, on average, $10 a day is an equitable percentage of our income to the $10,000 a day, blah blah fancy way of saying that we don't respect our betters enough.
Well, it's far in the future. But Ohio Republicans are taking another step towards this better future.

Thanks, Ross.
