We hear the rich-don't-pay-enough-taxes so much that I'm curious why we don't have a lobby demanding the government taking income from the rich non-profits and provide welfare for the poor ones. If Harvard can provide 90% assistance for its students with 6 figure family income, a small select set compared to the whole country's student population, why isn't some money, say 40% of their endowment income, taken from there to provide relief to students in poorer universities? Somehow I suspect many who feel rich individuals and corporations are getting off too easy won't feel the same way towards the rich and poor universities.
