To All Advocates of Higher Taxes : Put Up or Shut Up

A recent post reminded me there are innumerable individuals that constantly advocate higher taxes as inevitable and necessary. Many are very wealthy, and a few notables taking this position are Warren Buffett, and just about every Democrat politician.

Usually the left treats public advocacy of higher taxes as the ne plus ultra evidence of “leadership”.

However, they are missing a golden opportunity to provide both “leadership” and “revenues” to allow the government to do any or all of the following:

  1. Reduce the Public Debt
  2. Provide Critical Infrastructure Investment
  3. Fund Education Initiatives
  4. Promote Public Health
  5. Meet Basic Human Needs

Yes, higher tax advocate-I’m calling on you to act now, because the need is so great.This is a wonderful opportunity to show those misers on the right how much you believe in higher taxes. You can make a “prelevy personal assessment”.

The best part is it is so simple. Simply write a check made payable to the United States Treasury, and mail it to the following address:

Gifts to the United States
U.S. Department of the Treasury
Credit Accounting Branch
3700 East-West Highway, Room 622D
Hyattsville, MD 20782

We’ll be waiting for appropriately redacted images of canceled checks to be posted on the web to show how you’ve to provided “leadership”. Just remember, the bigger the gift, the more credit you get. We’ll be looking for amounts in the seven-figure and greater range. Are you up to this challenge?
