The rich should be taxed significantly to pay for foreign aid.

Pro

The rich (those who earn over double what is needed to live comfortably) should be made to pay 50% tax on any earnings over double what hey need to live comfortably. This debate assumes that the foreign aid is used effectively to save and improve lives significantly. This is not a debate on the effectiveness of foreign aid but whether we should give it and whether we should be forced to give it (taxed). First round is for acceptance. No semantics.

I am willing to give my opponent an extension to round three to make his initial case, if he would like to do so

I am definitely against this as there is a flaw. How do you measure how rich someone is as they may be in a large amount of debt and there is no scale of rich. Also why is it the rich's fault?
