I’m not any more altruistic than the next guy, I’m just greedy for a different kind of country than most other rich people. I want to be a rich man in a rich country.

Patriotic Millionaires

Proud “traitors to their class,” members of the Patriotic Millionaires are high-net worth Americans, business leaders, and investors who are united in their concern about the destabilizing concentration of wealth and power in America. The mission of The Patriotic Millionaires organization is to build a more stable, prosperous, and inclusive nation by promoting public policies based on the “first principles” of equal political representation, a guaranteed living wage for all working citizens, and a fair tax system: 1. All citizens should enjoy political power equal to that enjoyed by millionaires; 2. All citizens who work full time should be able to afford their basic needs; 3. Tax receipts from millionaires, billionaires and corporations should comprise a greater proportion of federal tax receipts.
