Let them eat cake: Paying taxes to support billionaire corporations and multi-millionaire academics is good for the common people.
Cui Bono from taxpayers’ subsidies? UPENN 1% President Amy Gutmann the Profitable Non-Profits pay well: UPENN president gets 35% percent pay raise to $2.8M. Did Pennsylvania’s taxpayers get a 35% pay increase? Who gets increases like that?
Let them eat cake, the taxpayers should be honored to pay us.
