Why wait? Send a big, fat check NOW: America’s richest billionaires say they want to be taxed more

Absolutely NOTHING is stopping these fools from writing a check RIGHT NOW to the US government. Demorats, send your money here.

From NY Post: The richest of the one percent have a message for the 2020 presidential candidates – tax us.

Financier George Soros and heiress Abigail Disney are among the 19 billionaires who published an open letter Monday to Republican and Democratic hopefuls saying that they “support a moderate wealth tax on the fortunes of the richest 1/10 of the richest 1% of Americans — on us.”

”The next dollar of new tax revenue should come from the most financially fortunate, not from middle-income and lower-income Americans,” they wrote.

Along with Soros and Disney, other signers include Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, Molly Munger, daughter of Berkshire Hathaway vice chairman Charlie Munger, and members of the Pritzker family – along with one anonymous.

”America has a moral, ethical and economic responsibility to tax our wealth more,” they write in the letter.

A wealth tax could raise funds to address the climate change crisis, bolster health care measures, curb income inequality and provide relief for those with student loans.

”The concept of a wealth tax isn’t new: Millions of middle-income Americans already pay a wealth tax each year in the form of property taxes on their primary form of wealth — their home,” the letter says. “The kind of moderate tax on the richest 1/10 of 1% that we support just asks us to pay a small wealth tax on the primary source of our wealth as well.”

The letter noted that a number of Democratic candidates – Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke and Rep. Tim Ryan – support the idea.

Yeah, we can trust George “I HATE AMERICA” Soros and Abigail Disney, probably a mind controlled MK Ultra abuse-ee.
I’m still waiting for these fakes to move out of the USA since Trump won.

Absolutely. I suppose they’d rather be filmed virtue signaling their donations in Spanish. That way they could be known to be “bi-ignorant”. They are all shameless whores.

The loopholes they use ad nauseum are in how their income is viewed under the tax laws. So much of their incoming monies aren’t addressed as income. Hence, lower taxes paid.
