The Patriotic Millionaires group first came together in 2010 to demand an end to the Bush tax cuts for millionaires, instantly sparking the public’s attention. Since then, the group has appeared on outlets from the Daily Show with Jon Stewart to the PBS NewsHour; from the front page of the Boston Globe to The History Channel; from The New York Times to The Atlantic to The New Yorker to Bloomberg.

The Patriotic Millionaires have generated hundreds of millions of dollars worth of media coverage both at home and abroad, with hundreds of op-eds in local and national outlets and over 1500 news stories featuring the group in the last year alone.
