As a dogmatist for the Heritage Foundation, your solutions sound like talking points from the G.O.P. that your institution probably wrote.
What is this “double taxation of savings” for instance? The only tax on savings is that on dividends and earned interest income. How would ending that improve mobility for those with “a dearth of personal savings?”
Poor people don’t have savings because wages paid by “job creators” don’t permit them to save, not the fear of taxes on earned interest income. So that solution only helps the rich while depriving the government of resources that might help the poor.
You also speak about “family breakdown.” Most family breakdown occurs among the poor, who can’t earn a living wage due to union busting, jobs offshoring, right to work laws, opposition to the minimum wage; all of which the Heritage foundation supports.
Education and job training are critical to moving up the ladder, but for poor people that means public education and job training, inadequately supported by location-based property tax distribution that overfunds schools in the rich suburbs and underfunds schools in the inner cities and rural areas, where poverty is most persistent, again due to policies the Heritage Foundation and the GOP not only support, but would exacerbate with school vouchers that subsidize private schools for the rich, while depriving the public schools of much needed revenue.
If you can’t be intellectually honest, you should not be invited to debate.
