It’s again that time when some rich people try and prove their patriotism by saying that the government should be taking more of their money in the form of taxes. They’re just trying to help if only the government would allow them to, y’all:
Meet the millionaires who have rallied around a simple idea: that rich people like them should pay higher taxes. https://t.co/MDRInqta2X

Guilty millionaires and billionaires are free to dig deep and send in whatever amount they think they should be paying to the federal government!
These fools can send more money to the Federal Government via the Bureau of Fiscal Service if they so choose. If they want to pass a law to drag everyone else into it, they can get bent.
This week's #COVIDReliefPackage debacle tells me the government doesn't need any more money. https://t.co/e6g7Uhe27r

What are the odds that every one of those rich people who think they should be paying more to the government employs an army of tax attornies to sniff out every possible deduction and exemption?
They're already free pay all the taxes they want. What they really want is for the middle class to get soaked. https://t.co/v4wAvHAG2O

You won't find one of these virtue signaling trustfunders who have written a check to the IRS that they didn't have to. https://t.co/mvFE5x0oMi

They do not want to pay higher taxes. They just want to virtue signal. They can pay all the extra they want at any time. https://t.co/JA9g65EhVF

They can simply donate all their money to charity instead… https://t.co/6UpMGDl0qt

There are so many other options, why won’t they take that course?
