What impact would it have on the USA if people who were rich just gave like this all on their own?

But of those 7%, how many are like the Pharisees, all show and no heart. Anonymous philanthropy would be the best for all concerned.
If American gov't used its wealth on food instead of war, no one on Earth would starve.
I don't think the lack of giving is a reflection of the wealthy, I think it is a reflection of our society as a whole. We all have a responsibility to our fellow man, so to put that burden solely on the wealthy is just a cop out by the rest of us.
Mklow......but, I do NOT place burden of giving, solely on the wealthy..not at all. In fact, in my experiences, it is the middle class who give & help, more than any others. I know that I surely give of myself & time, energies & donatio
I think you are all missing the point - the question isn't about giving, it's how we can use our own money to benefit others vrs the government taking your money to waste it, while Rosen demonstrates we know better than the government how to use it.
Well, you said "Sadly, not enough wealthy people are as wonderful & generous as Mr. Harris Rosen",
But in reality most PEOPLE in general are not like him, not just the wealthy.
Mklow, I mention the "wealthy," because they are the subject of this question. Unlike you, I can say that I see a lot of kindness & generosity from the common man, often & in many ways. I'm sorry you do not. Perhaps it's your perception.
Who said I don't see good in the common man? I said we all are lacking across the board. I think your emotions are getting the better of you and you are imagining what you want me to say and putting words in my mouth.
Well the message of what Harry Rosen did isn't to give away his money but use his money to incentivise them. A big difference that this government doesn't get.
Excellent, PF. You describe karma, which is also mentioned in the Bible, if you know how to look. Labels mean nothing ("atheists," etc). Love means everything.
Actually, the gentleman mentioned above is does a lot of fundraising through Christian organizations, so does that mean he only does it because he was impelled by God? Anyway, I don't think the poor care why people help, as long as they help.
tsadjatko....Bravo!! You are spot-on!
Rochelle! ah someone who gets it! There really is no reason we as a society working together in the private sector can't solve these types of problems Harry Rosen has solved without taking money from the rich to waste it on government policies.
tsa once again your comment is awaiting moderation, I have hit "Not Spam" Still says awaiting mod. Just didn't want you to think I deleted.
Even were we to accept Newsweek's methodology, which is already a leap of faith, many good schools being in red states does not mean red states have better schools. Exemplars do not inform us about totalities or averages.
