  • If the Left wants to pay higher taxes, let them!

    Hillary Clinton is SleepyFoundation alumnus and board member Wynton Hall writes in Human Events today that if rich liberals want to pay more taxes, what is stopping them?

    In part he writes,

    "As it turns out, your loving federal government has established just such a fund that allows any citizen who wishes to donate funds to the U.S.government.  It’s called the “Gifts to the United States Government Fund.”   According to the Department of the Treasury’s own website, this fund was established in 1843 for citizens to donate gifts, such as bequests, “from individuals wishing to express their patriotism to the United States.” Conveniently, the Treasury then provides the mailing address to which checks or money orders may be sent.

    Isn’t this great news?  

    Now George Soros, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, Warren Buffett, and thousands of rich liberals need no longer worry about the fight to raise taxes on wealthy individuals such as themselves.  They can just voluntarily give themselves a tax hike—at any rate they want, anytime they want.  Imagine the bliss!"
