Patriotic Millionaires say "tax me"

A group of millionaires got together to send this message to congress. 375,000 Americans have incomes over a million dollars. During the Great Depression, millionaires had a top marginal tax rate of 68%. In 1963 it was 91%. In 1976 it was 70%. Today it is 35%.

What a load of crap! Most of your income tax dollars go to paying off the federal debt!Give your govt. more money and all it will do is spend more on more useless programs to win votes and support big biz. this goes for either party. Fact is you could tax 100% of personal income and still not be able to pay back the debt.Its a spending problem,stupid!

Then leave the country. You're free to do so. Oh and try not to use any publicly funded systems on the way out, since you're so opposed to roads, schools, infrastructure, quality control etc... Go live in a country that doesn't have standardized government programs. You won't pay taxes there. Though, you might live in danger of being raped, mugged or killed every night. Also, the deficit was born from a LACK of government control and standardization of financial institutions. True the damage has been done, but Obama is trying to fight back the Bush created debt. I'm glad I live in Canada.

Latest comment: Thank you Realist for saving me the energy of replying to Kerry. This is a great advertisement and a very touching display. Not all humans are greedy whores. The rest of the world can take note. This is how logical thinking, kind-hearted humans should behave. We all should have access to education and health. Taxes pay for these things, amongst others to run a country.
