    I want everyone to consider the issues that this country faces right now.

    Now, pretend that there are no rich people in this country. No one makes over 100,000 dollars a year.

    Posting links to other peoples opinions won't count. After all, if you want to think creatively, you have to do it yourself.

    You still have to solve the problems of the issues that exist.

    How will you go about it?

    It's not possible for that situation to take place. Everyone knows all the problems in this country are cause by rich people. If there were no rich people, there would be no problems.

    I guess the Education system would fall apart, because nobody would be "running" America's School system if you were to hypothetically cap wages at 100k.

    In your scenario have the middle class wages remained stagnant for thirty years still?
    Do corporations still get to pay off politicians and news outlets in your scenario?
    Is the middle class completely gone in your scenario or just shrinking rapidly like it is now?
    Do insurance companies have the power to deny people based upon preexisting conditions or put coverage caps on benefits?
    Are the primary reason for bankruptcy due to medical costs?

    Whats the matter? There is only one stipulation.

    Can the items you listed be considered issues that need to be solved in this country?

    Have at it. Shouldn't be hard for all the Mensa candidates here on this forum.
