Millionaires urge New York governor: Please raise our taxes
The New Yorkers sent a letter to the Associated Press that proposes new, higher tax rates for the top 1 percent of earners.
A group of more than 40 millionaires in New York state has written to Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo and top lawmakers calling on them to consider raising taxes on the state's wealthiest residents to help address poverty and rebuild failing infrastructure.
The letter, a copy of which was given to The Associated Press, proposes new, higher tax rates for the top 1 percent of earners.
The letter goes on to say additional revenue is needed to address child poverty, homelessness and aging bridges, tunnels, waterlines, and roads.
Damn so even the rich are like "This shit is banana's; raise our taxes".
