Millionaires to Obama: Tax us


"Patriotic millionaires" call for their tax cuts to expire



Not surprisingly, some of the super-rich declined to join the Patriotic Millionaires when the Agenda Project reached out to them. At least two airily dismissed the Bush tax cuts for millionaires and above -- which will cost well over $700 billion over the coming decade -- as "small potatoes." And a Manhattan hedge fund billionaire said he believes the cuts should be extended and added that "the moneys should be used to pay down debt" -- which sounds like the magical Republican plan to simultaneously cut taxes, wage war and drastically reduce the deficit. The same investor also complained that "anyone who has money is made to feel that they're bad."

Obama adviser warns against tax cuts for wealthy


Obama adviser warns against tax cuts for wealthy

Jason Furman, deputy assistant to the president for economic policy, said a proposed short-term extension for the rich that some economists have advocated would put the country on a slippery slope it would be tough to pull back from...A poll this week by the National Association of Business Economics found 54 percent of that group back extending all the lower rates, while about 45 percent favored either letting them all expire or just extending them for the so-called middle class and under groups.
