Obama's Millionaires Want Money from You

The White House says 22,000 Americans would be impacted by President Obama's millionaire's tax. Obama found four of them willing to join him at a staged event, saying these millionaires believe they should pay higher taxes.

But none of them used the occasion to write a make-up check to the Treasury. However, the four are all political supporters of President Obama, who did write checks to his campaign.

They're also part of a group calling themselves Patriotic Millionaires. Their website is secretive about them, but does ask for you to give the millionaires a contribution. That money goes to advance the liberal progressive agenda, through a group that believes conservatives are part of a conspiracy.

These Obama millionaires simply want bigger government. So why didn't they write checks to pay for it, and why do they want your money to support their political cause?
