Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength

“We should pay more, we want to pay more…” – Patriotic Millionaires

On Tuesdays, we share updates and information from key commons partners we think you should know about. Today, we direct you to a petition you can sign to support US millionaires who want to be taxed more. In their own words:
Our country faces a choice – we can pay our debts and build for the future, or we can shirk our financial responsibilities and cripple our nation’s potential.

Our country has been good to us. It provided a foundation through which we could succeed. Now, we want to do our part to keep that foundation strong so that others can succeed as we have.

Please do the right thing for our country. Raise our taxes.
You can sign the Friends of Patriotic Millionaires petition here, and I would also encourage you to think about anyone you know who may fall into that bracket, whether on their own or in combination with a spouse or partner, and encourage them to sign as well.

Come back Thursday to read the next post in our Thursday series on Taxes and the Commons. Sean Thomas-Breitfeld will take a look at corporate loopholes and who isn’t asking to be taxed more!
