Writes John Seiler:

Here’s how I interpret Pope Francis’s call for the redistribution of wealth:

U.S. federal government workers are rich, making twice what the poor middle-class makes in the private sector. So, cut the rich government workers’ salaries in half, “redistributing” the money back to poor middle-class taxpayers by cutting their federal taxes in half — thus allowing them to survive, instead of squirming in poverty.
