Re "What happened to America's great middle class?" (Editorial, Oct. 21): What is the solution? Reinstate Glass-Steagall to prevent Wall Street from raping us again? Revamp the tax system to bring back American firms and jobs?
Cut out the loopholes only available to the rich? Tax capital gains and dividends at the same rate as earned income? Cut the budget of agencies whose existence benefits only big business? No. Instead, The Bee editorial board proposes spending even more on education than we already do, although we already spend plenty and have less to show for it than other countries.
