This is so wrong. It not only irrevocably harms the poor kids it, also, does damage to the kids with money. It skews reality, and sets up a us and them scenario that may last a lifetime. There's got to be a better way.

Here's the reality of it all, folks. Half of Americans are poor or living in poverty. Get that?
Here are two really good, explanatory articles.

The health gap between rich and poor is widening. Life expectancy for poor is nearing that of Sudan--in the richest country in the world.

Working 2 jobs (or more)? Can't afford to ever be able to retire? These thoughts don't, of course, consider there are plenty of people who are nowhere near retirement age, or that there are people just entering the workforce who must work 2 or more jobs.
fox newz wonders why and says "it's up for debate".

I just noticed I posted Billionaires paid more but, it should have been billionaires paid a lower tax rate than the working class for the first time in history. So here it is again. This is unforgivable.

Billionaires tears--for real. Let's all feel sorry for the billionaires. Seriously. 7 minutes
