Considering the following passage: 

Lately there has been a lot of discussion about whether the US should implement a “wealth tax” on the country’s richest people. The rich should pay more in income tax. Super wealthy individuals already have too much money for one person to spend, and the additional tax revenue can be used to improve schools.
