Skor is Running Behind: UW Costs

meaningless chartIt's good to see the government hard at work at one of its primary functions. I'm talking about the proposal to hike up the tuition at the University of Washington—only for the rich (aka evil) students, of course. This of course accomplishes the essential government function of equalizing wealth, one of the key principles our country was founded on.

One of the best ways to achieve this is to implement the plan shown in the chart at right, which I made myself in Paint. The more money someone has, the more things should cost for that person. For example, right now a loaf of bread costs $2.50 for everyone. Under the UW plan, loaf of bread pricing would look like this:
IncomeBread Cost
$30,000$2.50
$50,000$3.50
$75,000$5.00
$100,000+$50.00
That's pretty fair, right? I mean, they're rich, so it's only right that we should take their money. Congrats to the UW for coming up with such an ingenious plan. Here's hoping it gets implemented.

Haha! I like the loaf of bread analogy. But see...all that extra profit from that loaf of bread that the rich guy bought (aka $47.50) will go towards loaf-of-bread scholarships for those who are lower income and can't pay the full $2.50.
