The richest people in the USA are DEMOCRATS.

The richest Congressmen are DEMOCRATS.

DEMOCRAT Obama raked in the most money ever from Wallstreet Bankers.

The DEMOCRATS always have their hands in others pockets enriching themselves.

Case in point: The richest US senator & ex-presidential candidate is John Kerry. Kerry & his wife are the richest because their wealth comes from their Heinz foods company. Heinz foods company makes them rich by overcharging for the food they sell to people on government food programs such as school lunch, food-stamps, SNAP, EBT, etc. John Kerry & his cronies always make sure these government food programs are well funded with your tax dollars under the guise of "helping to feed the poor". If he wanted to help the poor he would lower their food prices instead of "fleecing the poor" & the tax payers to amass his record profits with his high price Heinz foods.

ANY TIME A DEMOCRAT SAYS I'M HERE TO HELP - GRAB YOUR WALLET!!!

1. Force kids to stay in school until they graduate.

How does 2, and especially 3, solve the problem?

Maybe handed was the wrong word more like made much easier. A kid from a middle class family has it a lot easier when his/her parents can pay for college where a kid from a poor area has a much tougher time getting ahead. The wealthier your parents are the better schools and better education you get.

Key word probably. If you did or didn't it is obvious you do not understand the limitations preventing people from getting more skills/ education but I am sure you will say if I can do so can they except those are whole different circumstances. Yes I know the ignorant everyone can do something will probably respond but I am not worried about their delusion about real life.

Nothing. Why should I care how much money George Soros has?

I'm not sure what your definition of "middle class" is, but in my opinion, most middle class families cannot afford to pay for all college expenses.

In regards to Denmark:
This is why the States should be left to handle their own government. Some states could follow the Denmark way of life. A country so big like USA compared to Denmark is hard to copy. We have states bigger than that country.

One size fits all policies and basically "ways of life" just can't fly in a country as big and populated as ours. Let's downsize the federal government to the extreme minimal..allow states to run THEIR show..and some states will be like it.

Some states will be successfully in different ways.

This problem has been studied since the days of Plato, when he concluded that the wealthy should earn no more than 6 times the average worker.
He was right, when income disparity grows, then the wealthy use their advantage to gain more advantage until the system is so unfair it causes revolution.
But like any other addict, the money addicts can never see when they have crossed the line.
There is only one way, to insure fairness and that is taxation.
When the US taxed the top brackets 90% we had a strong economy and a contented, happy population.
The rich will always lie, cheat, and steal. The only way to level the playing field is thru taxation.
