Patriotic Millionaires Beg For Higher Taxes [Video]

Occupy Wall Street wants Congress to allow the Bush-era tax cuts for the ultra wealthy to expire.

Republicans want to keep these tax cuts because they claim the benefits will “trickle down” to the rest of the nation.

But in all this debate, no one seems to care what the ultra wealthy want for themselves.

So some patriotic members of the 1% made a video to set the record straight. (Note: this video was made a few months ago, but Congress is STILL quibbling over how to increase revenue…)

This video was very gratifying to watch. I don't live in America, but watching the "We are the 99%" protests unfold has enabled to me to feel a sense of solidarity with those across the globe who are looking at the top 1% and calling out the government that helped to create the grossly imbalanced distribution of wealth.

Seeing a group of those whose personal finances place them in the 1% agree with the ideals of so many "below" them is a wonderful thing. This is caring, and it can also happen in those who have personal benefits from the current arrangement. =)
