Affirmative Action For The Poor

Required Reading

Richard Kahlenberg would like to see a new Affirmative Action scheme target the poor, rather than minorities. I agree wholeheartedly. I also would like to point out that Nebraska and, seemingly, Colorado have rejected their previous Affirmative Action schemes in the most recent election.

It reminds me of the reason that the Estate Tax was first introduced: in order to redistribute the wealth, to help buttress against wealthy families simply passing wealth along.

That is all. Please pay attention, President-Elect, and incoming Congress.
