Patriotic Rich People Deserve Credit

Here is the text of an open letter that a group of millionaires is sending to President Obama:

Dear Mr. President

We are writing to urge you to stand firm against those who would put politics ahead of their country.

For the fiscal health of our nation and the well-being of our fellow citizens, we ask that you allow tax cuts on incomes over $1,000,000 to expire at the end of this year as scheduled.

We make this request as loyal citizens who now or in the past earned an income of $1,000,000 per year or more.

We have done very well over the last several years. Now, during our nation’s moment of need, we are eager to do our fair share. We don’t need more tax cuts, and we understand that cutting our taxes will increase the deficit and the debt burden carried by other taxpayers. The country needs to meet its financial obligations in a just and responsible way.

Letting tax cuts for incomes over $1,000,000 expire, is an important step in that direction.

So far, millionaires from all over the country have joined in this patriotic gesture. They have even set up a website that makes it easy for millionaires to add their name to the letter. If you happen to be a millionaire reading this blog you must do two things right away: 1)click on the paypal "donate" button towards the top right of my blog, and 2) visit the "Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength" website and sign this letter!
