16. I agree with your reasoning, and have one concern.

Don't we still have to have complete congressional tax reform in order to mandate the money be required from the top 1% or so, and also a system for determining who needs the money first, and for how long. If we still have a capitalistic system, then we are going to have to start by balancing the two sides of the see-saw. After we figure out how to legally take the needed income from the wealthier citizens then we need to ensure that people don't play games to benefit from this genius overhaul at the expense of the tax-payer.
I still think the idea is great and necessary, but convincing everyone is going to require some proof that mobilization will put workers out of their jobs quickly.
