Billionaires Giving Away Their Fortunes Should Give Up MoreBy
Recently a group of billionaires pledged to give the majority of their wealth to charity. (You can read about it in this Wall Street Journal Article.)
I propose they give away their fortune to the government, just like they want the rest of us to be forced to do. I also propose they give up their fortunes down to the $250,000 per year level, the level at which the politicians they support claim that you’ve got too much.
Having ten billion dollars and giving up nine is no big deal in my book because you’re still left with more money you can reasonably spend in a lifetime. I want to see them give up their lavish lifestyles and get knocked down to the middle class level.
