The article discusses the difference in needs between the poor and the wealthy. The author cites two stories of destitution, one of a mother of three who went to the police and asked to be arrested so she could have shelter for herself and her children, and the other is that of a homeless girl in New York. The Senate resolution 304, which aims to free stock dividends from taxes is also presented. It is suggested that the Senate should study the resolution thoroughly for the sake of the poor.
