Yep you read it right 40 US millionaires want Obama to raise taxes on anyone earning $1M or more.
There are 7.8M millionaires in the US.
That equates to 5.12820513 × 10-6% of US millionaires that want Obama to raise taxes.
They call themselves Patriotic Millionaires.
Here is their petition letter to the President.
However, the group includes many big-time Democratic donors such as Gail Furman, trial lawyer Guy Saperstein and Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry's ice cream (Wonder what Jerry thinks?)
For the fiscal health of our nation and the well-being of our people…STOP SPENDING.
These millionaires didn’t get rich solely by spending.
If they are so concerned for our fiscal health of our nation, whip out the old W4, there is a line on it that says “Additional amount, if any, you want withheld from each paycheck” and place this figure of $395,000 (39.5% of $1M) on it and "Do your fair share" then.
And don’t speak for the rest of the 99.9999999487% of millionaires.
