I saw that Gwen Moore was trending. Who the heck is Gwen Moore? Until a few minutes ago I had no idea either.
Gwen Moore is a US congresswoman who has proposed a bill requiring drug tests for the rich who have itemized deductions on tax returns totaling more than $150,000.
The proposed bill is called the “Top 1% Accountability Act” and would force taxpayers with itemized deductions of more than $150,000, to submit a clear drug test. This would apply to those with an annual adjusted gross income of more than $1 Million.
The bill was proposed after an onslaught of proposed fights to have welfare recipients and others on government assistance screened before receiving help. Moore was “sick and tired of being sick and tired of the criminalization of poverty” and proposed the bill to start on the other end of the spectrum and show the rick what fair tax policy looks like.
So what do you think? Is this a waste of time? Should the US start drug testing the rich? Take the poll below!
