‘Who’s stopping them?’ Group of ‘Patriotic Millionaires’ wants to pay more in taxes, so what are they waiting for?
In the face of evidence completely contradicting her claim, Kamala Harris and other Democrats are still insisting that the Trump tax cuts are hurting the middle class and only benefiting the wealthiest among us. Well, fortunately for Dems, some of the wealthy people allegedly reaping all the benefits of the tax cuts want to do something about it:
The "Patriotic Millionaires," a group of about 200 wealthy individuals — worth billions combined — say they should be taxed more, and as soon as possible. https://t.co/LKZrCfR3wZ

More from NBC News:
“It’s a matter of equity, fairness and the fact that we have the money to pay the taxes and we’re not being asked to pay them,” [Karen Seal] Stewart, a former real estate executive, told NBC News. “My sense is we are really at a cusp. We better get our act together because … the lack of fairness and opportunity is growing.”
Is Stewart waiting for a formal invite to fulfill her dream of giving the government more of her money, or … ? What are she and her like-minded friends waiting for, exactly?
The millionaires aren’t backing any specific candidate — though they say Warren is right on taxing wealth. They just want action.
“Important things” like infrastructure and health care require money, Stewart said. “You need to get the money where it is. It’s with the wealthy. … Do not feel sorry for us. We will still be fine. And the country will be better off.”
Trust us, honey. We don’t feel sorry for you. Nobody does. Now get to writing that check before all that money burns any more holes in your pockets.
Who's stopping them?

They realize they are free to donate more money to the government, right?

There's nothing stopping them from paying more taxes right now.

You don’t need the government to tell you how to be charitable. Donate, sponsor, give and create!

Someone should tell these super smart billionaires that tax rates are minimums, not maximums.

They can pay more taxes. We don’t have to pass a law for that. 🤦🏻♂️

They’re welcome to donate whatever they want to the government, but dictating what other people should pay is anything but patriotic.

The IRS accepts donations. Write a check.

Don’t wait, start writing checks.

The treasury accepts gifts.

Yep. Far be it from us non-millionaires to stand in their way.
Tell them to mail their checks to:
Internal Revenue Service
P.O. Box 37910
Hartford, CT 06176-7910

Time for them to put all that excess money where their big mouths are. Otherwise, we have no choice but to believe they’re completely full of it.
Today is tax day. I’m sure the govt would have no problem if they voluntarily sent in a check for more than what they owe. What is stopping them? Oh yeah, they are all frauds.

All 200 of these millionaires can write a check to the US Treasury whenever they want. What's stopping them? Why don't they give 90% of their wealth to the poor and do so today? Just another mob of Limousine Libs.
