BE A PATRIOTIC MILLIONAIRE
Patriotic Millionaires have annual incomes of more than $1 million and/or assets of more than $5 million.
As an organization we actively work together to advance our common goals which include a fairer tax system that includes greater tax obligations for millionaires and major corporations who have benefitted the most from the nation’s resources; higher incomes, beginning with a minimum wage of at least $15 an hour, for wage earners, who are the foundation of our nation’s economy; and less political influence for those whose sole credential is the ability to pay for it.
All members of the Patriotic Millionaires support the public education campaign with an annual pledge. The specific level of support is left to the discretion of the individual member.
