Day 6 of 100 Days of Blogging, If I Ran My Country for a Day, What One Change would I Like to Make?

Hello, and welcome back to 100 Days of Blogging. Today’s prompt comes to us from the World category and the card states, “If you could run your country for a day, what’s one change you’d like to make?”

This question is an easy one for me, because the one change I would like to make would enable our country to enact a lot of other changes that would improve people’s lives, and that one change would be to reform the tax code and make it so that Billionaires actually do have to pay taxes and pay an equitable share in taxes.

I would still keep the progressive tax structure where you only pay the increased rate on the money you earn after a certain point, but there comes a time where the money you earn becomes a high score rather than something that you need to provide for yourself and your family.

No one “earns” over a billion dollars. The people that actually earn that money are the workers, and the owners take more than their share in profit. By taxing them more, the government will be able to take that money and put it to good use for the good of all the people, not just for the billionaires to play “Money Highscore” with.

So that is the one change I’d like to make if I was in charge of my country for one day.
