Education and work create financial wealth

I cannot believe that some people actually believe that by returning wealth to the have-nots, I assume through some kind of welfare program, it would make them the real job creators.

All that Mr. John Eades [“Return wealth to have-nots, the real job creators,” The Reader’s Voice, June 20] talks about is how bad rich people are, but forgets that these people came to this country to get educated so they could fulfill their dreams and better their lives by working hard and owning their own businesses.

The rich people learned early that the pathway to financial wealth is not sitting at home playing video games, doing drugs, having children at 16 years of age, or just complaining. It is through education and work.

Penalizing hard-working, job-creating rich people to support the have-nots sounds a lot like socialism to me. Is that the road that Americans want to go down? I don’t think so.
