Tax the rich to cure USA’s debt problem

To the editor:

Many of us are concerned about the national debt, to which the Republican congress has just added approximately $1.5 trillion over the next 10 years. One approach would be to drastically cut funding for healthcare, education, and social services. Another would be to raise taxes on rich people, who own an increasingly large percentage of our national wealth. Why isn’t it obvious which is the better choice?
