TaxTheRich.com was created by a group of Patriotic Millionaires who are sick of watching the richest people in the country – and the politicians they control – rig the tax code and the economy so that they get all the benefits and everyone else is left holding the bag.
We, the Patriotic Millionaires, don’t want to expense our private jets, pretend to be an Irish company to avoid taxes, or hide our money in a Swiss bank account. And we sure as hell don’t want to pay lower tax rates than the people who work for us. And it’s not because we are nice or good or altruistic, by the way. We are just as greedy as the Other Millionaires, we’re just greedy for a different kind of country than they are.
The *Other Millionaires* want to live in a country with a tiny number of rich people, millions of poor people and no middle class. They want special treatment. They think they deserve special treatment. They puff up their chests, call themselves “Job Creators” and insist the economy will collapse if (god forbid!) they are asked to pay a single penny more in taxes.
Millionaires put their pants on one leg at a time, just like everyone else. Consumer demand is the only real “job creator”. And nothing is going to collapse if millionaires pay their fair share (except for possibly an over-inflated ego or two).
Join our fight to Unrig the economy. Tax the Rich. And Save America.
