114. Tax them and don't stop until ...
Every American can have the healthcare they need.
Every American gets all the food they need.
Every American gets a job that pays at least 15 dollars an hour.
Every American goes to college so they can make something of themeselves.

Or maybe I'm just crazy and we need more golden sinks and private jets.
