h/t Rob Port of www.sayanythingblog.com:

Recently in Washington DC a group of self-described “rich” and “one percenter” political activists gathered to ask Congress to raise their taxes. The call themselves the Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength. The idea is that they believe they’re under taxed, and want the government to take more from them to fund the government.

So the folks at the Daily Caller talked to some of the activists, and asked them if they’d be willing to make a donation to the US Treasury on the spot. And, showing what utter hypocrites they are, they refused. Because it’s not about them paying more. It’s about the government forcing other people to pay more.
