Properly tax millionaires and billionaires

Apr 19 2011

In a stirring speech, President Obama reminded us of our common values -- that as Americans, we believe in shared sacrifice during tough times, and shared prosperity when times are good.

Now those values have been flipped on their head. While America's millionaires and billionaires pay the lowest tax rate in 80 years, Congress is slashing critical services like food stamps, family planning and foreclosure assistance that keep poor and working folks afloat. It's immoral and un-American.

It's past time that we ask the richest Americans to contribute their fair share. Please join us in supporting Rep. Jan Schakowsky's Fairness in Taxation Act.

This campaign has concluded.
