    Millionaires Support Warren Buffett’s Tax on the Rich - The Wealth Report - WSJ

    Warren Buffett isn’t the only rich guy who wants to higher taxes on the rich.

    A new survey from Spectrem Group found that 68% of millionaires (those with investments of $1 million or more) support raising taxes on those with $1 million or more in income. Fully 61% of those with net worths of $5 million or more support the tax on million-plus earners.

    The rich should not pay taxes at a lower rate than the rest of us.

    Even the rich get it.

    When will the Republican Party get it?

    I think so many wealthy people are willing to accept higher taxes because they have a lot of excess income while the middle class and the poor are fighting to keep their heads above water.
