The Patriotic Millionaires is a group of Americans with annual incomes over $1 million who believe that the country's current level of economic inequality is both dangerous and immoral. The Patriotic Millionaires focus on a set of issues that best illustrate the disparity between legislation that serves the best interest of the majority of citizens and that which enriches the few. Members expressly support legislation that directly yields: a fairer tax system that includes greater tax obligations for millionaires and major corporations, higher incomes for wage earners, and less political influence for those whose sole credential is the ability to pay for it.
