  1. Exam claims ‘income redistribution’ among ‘main functions of government’

    The role of government is to redistribute wealth, according to a course at the Milwaukee School of Engineering.

    A test, administered on April 29 in Professor John Traxler’s Healthcare Economics class, told students that “[o]ne of the main functions of government is income redistribution,” then asked them to explain what the statement meant. The correct answer was C: “Taxing the wealthy and giving it to those in poverty.”


    A professor with an agenda, nothing to see here, move along.

  2. Why it’s even a topic in the “school of engineering” is at least as much of an outrage as the question itself.
