$1200 > $6500, Trust Us

If $2,200,000,000,000 was divided amongst the 330,000,000 or so citizens, we would each receive just over $6500. That’s $6500 for the newborns, $6500 for the centenarians, and $6500 for every citizen in between. Instead, non-dependent adults max out at $1200 and will also get $500 per dependent child under the age of 17, but $0 if they're 17-24 years old. Instead of treating Americans equally, our elected representatives have shown us who they prefer to support. This is the best division of resources according to our representatives. How many of us feel represented at all?
