Tax us, please! Millionaires say they’re willing to pay more

Warren Buffett is willing to pay more.

So are other  millionaires (and billionaires), it appears.

According to a survey of those with $1 million or more in investments, the rich are OK with higher taxes on themselves, according to a report in Huffington Post.

That is a profound act!!!…If I was a millionaire, I would want to help buy paying more. As the saying goes…you can’t take it with you!

If they want to pay more it is very easy, there is a line on the bottom of every tax form to pay additional monies to the government; no one is stopping them.

Warren Buffett, shut up

Maybe they feel guilty about having money and want to get rid of it. And they’re naive. The government is just going to squander every extra penny they pay, and then some, on new wars or new entitlement programs.

This is apalling! We should be “broadening the base” (republican for raise taxes on poor and middle class folks) instead! God forbid billionaires have to shell out a few more bucks while the working poor starve. The nerve of these people!

I call nonsense. As others have said, nothing is stopping these millionaires and billionaires from voluntarily giving their money to the government. There is indeed the space on the 1040 form for folks to give money to the government. So, put up or shut up. That especially goes for Warren Buffett. He has a plan to dispose of most of his money when he dies, but is he giving it to the government? NO. He wants everybody else to do that.

Oh, and Samantha? You come across as a buffoon.
