Hypocritical "Patriotic Millionaires" Demand Congress Raise Their Taxes But Won't Voluntarily Pay More
Washington — "Two dozen “patriotic millionaires” traveled to the Capitol on Wednesday to demand that Congress raise taxes on wealthy Americans.
The Daily Caller attended their press conference with an iPad, which displayed the Treasury Department’s donation page, to find out if any of the “patriotic millionaires” were willing to put their money where their mouth is."
Grouch: Are their reactions not 100% predictable? And supremely hypocritical? What fool would give the government extra money that he wasn't forced to give? The name of the game is to pay the government as few taxes as legally possible because you know they are going to do a bunch of stupid and wasteful things with the money. Better to keep it and grow a business that employees more people or give it to a low overhead charity who will the dollars are put to good use.
