Recently, a group of millionaires sent a letter to the president and leaders of congress saying that folks making more than $1,ooo,ooo should have their taxes raised substantially. Yup, let’s “spread the wealth around,” as then senator Barak Obama told Joe the Plummer during the 2008 presidential campaign. Even “Sleepy Joe” Biden thought that it was a good thing to do. In fact he said it was “patriotic.”
Well why waste the government’s time writing new tax code when these patriotic millionaires could just open their wallets and write Uncle Sam a check. They could do it today. In fact, maybe the president and “Sleepy Joe” should go back to George Washington University, turn on the lights and TV cameras, get out their checkbooks, and lead by example. ADB

Here’s the letter from Patriotic Millionaires:
“WE SHOULD PAY MORE, WE WANT TO PAY MORE… aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Patriotic Millionaires
DEAR MR. PRESIDENT, HON. HARRY REID, AND HON. JOHN BOEHNER,
We are writing to urge you to put our country ahead of politics. For the fiscal health of our nation and the well-being of our fellow citizens, we ask that you increase taxes on incomes over $1,000,000. We make this request as loyal citizens who now or in the past earned an income of $1,000,000 per year or more.
Our country faces a choice – we can pay our debts and build for the future, or we can shirk our financial responsibilities and cripple our nation’s potential. 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.
