Millionaires to Congress: Raise Our Taxes

The org Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength is lobbying Congress today, asking that rich Americans be taxed more as a way of solving the country’s fiscal woes.

“We want to pay more taxes,” said Doug Edwards, a former marketing director for Google, per CNN. “If you’re fortunate, and you make more than a million dollars a year, you ought to pay more taxes.”

Hollywood hasn’t exactly been rushing to support the effort — no stars were among the two dozen or so who trekked to Capitol Hill — but the ranks of Patriotic Millionaires include Edie Falco and Abigail Disney. Moby, producer Rene Balcer and director Paul Haggis have signed their names to past Patriotic Millionaires petitions. Other entertainment figures like Ron Howard and Mark Cuban have expressed support for the Buffett Rule, or Warren Buffett’s call for millionaires to be taxed at the same rate as the middle class.
