WHY? This is ridicuulous - the problem was created by incompetents in Congress elected by an incompetent bunch of voters. What did the wealthy have to do with it - their voting power is miniscule. Let's look at a corporation - votes are by share ownership - I call this fair. So, allow only those to vote who have skin in the game.
We Americans were a Republic, not a Democracy. Look it up and suddenly fariness becomes reality.
