‘Patriotic millionaires’ demand higher taxes, but unwilling to pay up [VIDEO]
The Daily Caller ^ | 11/17/2011 | Michelle Fields

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.

Cannot find the video that is supposed to be on this page, but heard the audio this morning and it is pretty funny. NONE of the "patriotic millionaires" were willing to "individually" donate to the Treasury website when asked.

It's not terribly hard to make the donation:

Gifts to the United States Government

payable to the "United States Treasury"

Gifts to the United States
U.S. Department of the Treasury
Credit Accounting Branch
3700 East-West Highway, Room 622D
Hyattsville, MD 20782

Someone, perhaps many of us, should tell these millionaires.

The so called GOP leadership need to really go after these guys and expose them for the phonies they are.

Democrats know how to seize the moment, our guys tend to lay down.

Odd. These clowns are “smart” enough to become millionaires but too stupid to know that there is no restrictions on them writing a check to the IRS to help lower the national debt. Phonies 4 sure!!!!

Liberals from Warren Buffett to the bottom of the barrel are all the same: they don’t personally want to pay more taxes, they want everyone else other than themselves to have to pay more taxes.

These patriotic millionaires are really crony capitalist, Fascist bastard, shill insiders that will not pay the tax rates or have to obey the regulations imposed on their competitors.

This is exactly what Fascism is, a far left socialist government-business conglomerate that ensures the profit of those with government partners and the destruction of those without government partners.

"Patriotic millionaires" demanding taxes that THEY will never have to pay, and they will be the only ones who receive astronomical amounts of taxpayer funds in no-bid contracts.

Really like to see other reporters doing the same thing. Asking people if they think they should pay more taxes and give them the opportunity to do so on the spot.

Besides the Daily Caller, I can only see this done by The Daily Show or the Colbert Report.

Lets uncover the real skeletons in these ntiwits closets.

At 1:41 of video the guy won’t donate, can’t tell the reporter why and calls her silly.

I have a libinlaw that is self-righteously “green”,
yet drives a huge vehicle for “garage saling”.

When I asked her about it, she said “I can afford it, so I’m going to drive it.”

Some politician should tell them, “You could save us even more time and money if you just made a donation right now rather than waiting for the government to bill you.”

“I’m from the government and I’m here to take your voluntary overpayment.”

You know, to help them stop feeling so guilty. It’s hard to live with all that guilt. It’s really doing them a favor.

That was the most truthful video since we saw The Great Bent One walking after Secretary Brown’s funeral.
