should Americans trust – ‘Patriotic Millionaires’ or ‘Millionaire
Politicians’?” says Erica Payne spokesperson for the Patriotic Millionaires

New York, NY: Today the Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength
released a forceful video condemning Republican politicians for opposing President
Obama’s “Buffett Rule” which would impose a new
minimum tax rate for Americans earning $1 million a year or more. The video calls out more
than two dozen politicians including:
Paul Ryan (R – WI), Orrin Hatch (R – UT) John Boehner (R – OH), Eric Cantor (R
– VA), John McCain (R – AZ) and Ron Paul (R – TX) for
opposing the tax for their own benefit.

“Millionaire Politicians who want to
GIVE THEMSELVES A TAX CUT are hardly trust-worthy stewards of our country’s
future. Their continued support of policies that advance their own economic
self-interests is un-American,” said Erica Payne, spokesman for the Patriotic
Millionaires and founder of the Agenda Project.

“Republicans call this modest proposal “class warfare”? It’s
never been more clear that they are in thrall to their wealthy patrons and have
sold working people down the river,” said David DesJardins, former
Google engineer and Patriotic Millionaire.

“The Republican Party’s absolute
refusal to raise taxes is, in effect, a refusal to govern. Taxation has been a
fundamental instrument of government virtually from the beginning of history,
and to say you can’t or won’t use it is like refusing to use the army. It
disqualifies you from holding high office,” Henry Bean, Producer and Patriotic

“It’s time for millionaires – LIKE
ME AND THE ONES IN CONGRESS – to step up to the plate and start paying their
fair share, ”
said Guy Saperstein, lawyer and Patriotic

“I find it immoral that we can ask our soldiers especially
our national guard members to help defend our country over and over and yet the
republicans refuse to believe our country can’t ask our wealthiest citizens to
help get people jobs and pay for these wars rather than give the bill to our
grandchildren. The idea that asking our wealthiest citizens to help will
negatively affect the economy is ridiculous and unfair to our brave soldiers
some of whom have sacrificed their lives for this country,” says Jeff Gural,
Chairman, Newmark Knight and Patriotic Millionaire.

The Patriotic
Millionaires are coordinated by the Agenda Project, a
New York-based public policy organization, with Wealth for the Common Good,
a network of business and civic leaders, wealthy individuals and partners,
promoting fair and adequate taxation to support public investment in a healthy


Most AMERICANS want to
raise taxes on MILLIONAIRES

These POLITICIANS don’t.

wish to show that the nation is worthy of its good fortune.” Theodore Roosevelt
