Tax the rich, Warren Buffett says -- and a majority of millionaires agree.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/2 ... 35763.html
According to a survey from the consulting firm Spectrem Group, sixty-eight percent of millionaires -- defined as people with investments of $1 million or more -- support raising taxes on people who earn $1 million or more in income, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The survey seems to reflect the sentiments of groups like Patriotic Millionaires, an organization of wealthy citizens that has urged the government to impose higher taxes on people like themselves. It also echoes the policy recommendations of President Obama, who has called for revisions to tax law that would levy a tax rate on millionaires at least as high as that experienced by middle-class earners.
percentage on their income than you do on yours?
it's ALREADY HIGHER than yours.
No it's not, most of them like the pathological liar pay a lower rate, 15%.
