Help Warren Buffett raise taxes on the super rich

August 18, 2011

We hear a lot about "shared sacrifice" and belt-tightening out of

Washington, but as billionaire investor Warren Buffett noted on Sunday:

"Our leaders have asked for ‘shared sacrifice.’ But when they did the

asking, they spared me…and while most Americans struggle to make ends

meet, we mega-rich continue to get our extraordinary tax breaks."

As complicated as some want to make it, this issue is very simple. In a

time of economic crisis, it’s both healthy for our democracy and

fundamentally fair to ask the super rich to pay more.

Senator Bernie Sanders has a bill to do this and make millionaires and

billionaires pay their fair share. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

has yet to call a vote on it.

Warren Buffett is asking Congress to raise his taxes. So I just signed a

petition telling Harry Reid to call a vote on the Sanders bill.

I hope you’ll do so as well.

You can find out more information and sign the petition at the link below.
