Rich must share wealth
To the editor:
I am looking for a 2024 candidate for U.S. president who will run on a “Robin Hood agenda” that is similar to Huey Long’s “Share the Wealth” agenda. Her platform/agenda would include a one-time national wealth tax of 20% on all individuals who have a net wealth and net worth of $10 million and higher. It would also include placing a cap on personal fortunes of $60 million and sharing the resulting revenue that is gained with everyone else in the society, especially those who are leading responsible lives. Perhaps her first priority should be establishing a Canadian-style national health insurance program that will cover every American who wants it.
Addressing climate change and global warming could be next.
