Patriotic millionaires ask for tax increase

By Paul Buchheit

Patriotic Millionaires recently addressed the President and Congress: “Given the dire state of our economy, it is absurd that one-quarter of all millionaires pay a lower tax rate than millions of working, middle-class American families....  Please do the right thing for our country.  Raise our taxes.” 

It’s good to know somebody gets it right.  Taxes, for the most part, are not unfair. They represent payment for society’s many benefits, which get bigger and better as people get richer.
