About Patriotic Millionaires University
Even seasoned politicians struggle to wrap their head around how backwards and how corrupt our system has become, but it is something you have an obligation to discuss with voters. We want to help you discuss the economic issues that matter.
In 2017, on a party line vote, Republican lawmakers rewrote the entire federal tax code. The new Republican Tax Code is not the expression of any sort of coherent economic philosophy, it is a payoff to the donor class that will be paid for by America’s middle class.
The NEW REPUBLICAN TAX CODE does the following:
- Transfers more than a trillion dollars from America’s bank account into the pockets of millionaires, billionaires, CEOs and corporations;
- Rewards people who make money off investments over those who actually work for a living;
- Provides a significant financial incentive to corporations to move jobs overseas;
- Hands millions of tax free dollars to the heirs of dynastic wealth;
- Creates an easy new way for wealthy people to game the system;
- Closes virtually no loopholes. Yes, those fund managers are still “getting away with murder” (as are real estate developers and many others);
- Dismantles a key provision of the ACA, the result of which will be 13 million more uninsured people and an estimated 10,000 additional deaths per year.
Weeks after robbing the nation of $1.9 trillion of revenues, GOP lawmakers began using the deficit they themselves created to demand huge cuts to the Children’s Health Insurance Program, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and other investments which, for decades, have protected American citizens from birth through old age, and American society from even worse levels of chaos and despair than we are currently experiencing.
We created PMU last cycle to help candidates run and win against this obscene bill. Now, we have updated the platform to help candidates continue that fight, while also providing a positive alternative for our economy that includes passing an urgently-needed raise to the federal minimum wage.
About the Patriotic Millionaires
Members of the Patriotic Millionaires are high-net worth Americans who share a profound concern about the destabilizing concentration of wealth and power in America. The mission of the Patriotic Millionaires is to build a more stable and prosperous nation by promoting public policies based on the “first principles” of equal political representation, a living wage for working citizens, and a fair tax system. We believe:
- Every American deserves as much political power as millionaires;
- Every American who works full time should be able to afford their basic needs;
- Millionaires and corporations – who have benefitted the most from our country’s assets – should (gladly) pay more of the tab for running the country.
The group first came together in 2010 to protest President Obama’s decision to extend the “Bush tax cuts” on incomes over $1 million. Since then, the group has spoken to thousands of American voters, appeared on media outlets across the country, and met with and testified in front of hundreds of elected officials at all levels of government..
