Half these people are renowned philanthropists. Mike Bloomberg just donated $1 Billion dollars to charities. Kinda beats the P out of your 45 cents.
Warren Buffet wants Billionaires to pay the same rates as his secretary.
And so on, you look the rest up like how Soros spends Billions to help start democracies all over the world.
You can do better than throw a bunch of names in an e-mail.

Maybe because it is their money. Why invest in an economy when the government is hell bent on destroying it. They know they cannot be taxed on money just because they have it. They only have to pay taxes on the profit they make from interest or investments that pay off. As long as our government is determined to regulate and create road blocks for business they will continue to sit on their money instead of investing it. You people who believe Obama is Robin Hood and he is going to take from the Super Rich and give it to your sorry asses you have been mislead. If our economy is to survive they must invest and that is not likely to happen as long as Obama is in power. They did not get Super Rich by being stupid and they are not going to invest unless they are investing in a sure thing. Obama's plan is so confusing investing is risky so why would they take a risk when they don't need to? It's Common sense The problem is Obama does not have any.

i received't be as rich as your examples yet I have a whack of money, a lot of it earned by thirty years of medical practice yet maximum by inheritance as area of a kin rich for generations. I, too, am a Democrat. We play with the help of the rules, what rues have survived deregulation. Are you suggesting that even as following the guidelines of the land we are not entitled to discuss how unfair those rules are because we are prevailing? Do you imagine that in simple terms those who're dropping do not imagine that the taking area in container must be factor? what form of delight is there in prevailing even as the game is fixed? extra, we comprehend that the U. S. became outfitted with the help of generations, and has been maintained by the sweat and sacrifice of each citizen. it truly is hence perfect that each and each citizen earnings from the outcome of this labour and that all of us pay our justifiable percentage for the fee of upkeep. My moms and dads and grandparents fought 2 international Wars and lived by the Hoover melancholy, yet they got here out of it united and keen to pay the taxes it took to construct the full means grid and the interstate street gadget that made perfect this second's u.s. conceivable. The infrastructure became not outfitted with the help of the non-public sector, yet with the help of the tax funds all of us paid, yet perfect this second the Republicans could have you ever trust in the different case. We became tremendous by collective action. we've lost our greatness because a collection of incredibly rich greedheads have offered up the once tremendous Republican party and are using it in an attempt to maintain away from returning a percentage of the wealth that the country's collective attempt helped them earn. because some individuals are literally not contemptible and egocentric, could we be castigated or defamed? it extremely is worse, to be an straightforward human being of wealth or a gullible operating human being?

You forgot Bill Gates, and the infamous Al Gore.
@Reality has a Liberal Bias
lol that's the point the question is sarcastic because a lot liberals hate on the rich and think they are all white Republicans that were born that way and give nothing back to society. Im sure if you keep digging you will find most of the "rich" give a large percentage of there income to charity.
