Millionaires to Obama: Tax Me!
A 200-strong group called Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength is demanding that President Obama please raise their taxes. "For the fiscal health of our nation and the well-being of our fellow citizens," pleads a message to Obama on the group's website, "we ask that you increase taxes on incomes over $1,000,000." It goes on: "Our country has been good to us. It provided a foundation through which we could succeed. Now, we want to do our part to keep that foundation strong so that others can succeed as we have. Please do the right thing for our country. Raise our taxes."
You will notice one of them even mentions his education in public schools and libraries was responsible for his success!
