Pro-tax millionaires protesting in front of Bezos’s homes

Millionaires who support raising taxes on the rich are protesting in front of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’s homes, calling for the billionaire to pay more in taxes. 

CNBC reported on Monday that the group known as Patriotic Millionaires is planning to launch a campaign on Tax Day in which they will mobilize units in front of Bezos’s homes in Washington and New York. 

The organization also shared a tweet calling on Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to support the cause.  

Patriotic Millionaires President Erica Payne also released a statement on the proposed campaign, sharing excerpts from the organization’s book “Tax the Rich! How Lies, Loopholes, and Lobbyists Make the Rich Even Richer.” 

“Jeff Bezos is the poster child for the total idiocy of the country’s tax code,” Payne told CNBC.

This comes as President Biden and Democratic lawmakers are seeking to raise taxes on major corporations to aid the administration’s $2 trillion infrastructure package.
