The Patriotic Millionaires have generated literally hundreds of millions of dollars of media coverage both at home and abroad. Please see our Patriotic Millionaires REEL for highlights of our media coverage.
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 generated hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of media attention, appearing 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 Atlantic to Bloomberg.
