WATCH: ‘Patriotic Millionaires’ Demand Higher Taxes, Refuse to Pay Up When Asked
by Your World Posted in: Congress, Michelle Fields, Neil Cavuto, Patriotic Millionaires

When a group of “patriotic millionaires” gathered to demand that Congress raise their taxes, Daily Caller Reporter Michelle Fields took it as an opportunity to see how serious they were about the cause by asking them if they’d be willing to make personal donations to the government.

Fields joined Neil Cavuto and revealed that none of the people she approached were willing to donate any money. She said, “When you truly believe that something is right, you’re willing to do it even if no one else is doing it because you believe in that and you think that’s right. Obviously these people don’t really think what they are doing is right if they’re not willing to put forth the money.”
The video shows Fields with the webpage to donate money to the U.S. Treasury and a bunch of these millionaires refuse to donate, right after their meeting about how they should be taxed more.

Of course they aren't going to pay more. Nobody in their

right mind would but it makes for a good show.

Somebody should have shoved her to the pavement. :icon_cool

She does look a lot hotter without the glasses though.

Still, shame on those guys for not wanting to put their names and credit card info on some strange iPad. Looked legit...

hypocrites the rich lawyers on the video are

they all had these wonderful excuses for not paying right there

I would have asked them, which tax form do you use?

the 1040EZ or

a 1040A with all the deductions and a room full of accountants?

When people like this say they should be paying higher taxes, they don't really mean they should be paying higher taxes, they mean they should have a higher rate but with a lot more loop holes and deductions and that the rest of us should be paying more in taxes.

That's exactly what I think too. You know every one of those fucks would hire an extra tax lawyer the minute "their" tax the millionaires bill got passed.

Yeah, I get that. That was why I almost didn't post it. Then I realized that not one of them said "Yeah I already donated to that site." One would think that people who are so concerned with making sure the gov't gets more of their money would realize that this is a real site:
