How can we lessen the disparity between the rich and the poor in America?
According to the Pew Research Center, the top 7 percent of all U.S. households own 63 percent of all the wealth in the country. On average, households in the top 7 percent have 24 times as much wealth as households in the bottom 93 percent.
Statistics like these show the massive disparity between the rich and poor in America. I feel the need to do something about this, but I'm not sure what i can do to make changes. Any ideas?
Update: Ive got three good stories to include in my letter thus far. Theres ten days left before this conversation gets closed. I'd like to get two or three more statements before i write up this letter to be sent to senators/congressman. I probably wont write the letter until I go on christmas break. Please, anyone who may be interested in receiving a copy of this letter to send to their own senators and congressman should send me an email. My email address is email@example.com
Closing Statement from Alex Meseck
As is clear to me after all this, making these changes in the distribution of wealth will not be easy. But being the optimist I am, I think we can make this change happen if we work together. I am in the process of writting the letter, anyone interested in recieving a copy should email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and thanks for the variety of ideas.
