Berkeley to Soak the Rich?

The Washington Times reports that the University of California is considering a proposal under which the children of “rich” parents would pay a surcharge to attend the university. The “rich” would be defined as those with family incomes above $90,000. The proposal is doubly unfair, in that the same parents who would now be surcharged have already contributed disproportionately to the university system through their taxes. On the bright side, however, discriminating against the “rich” right off the bat would give the kids a head start on the lessons they’re going to learn in college.
