Tax Day | Patriotic Millionaires Available For Comment

EVERYWHERE, USA - As Americans across the country finalize their tax returns this week, the Patriotic Millionaires will be available for media appearances and on-the-record interviews in cities across the country.

The Patriotic Millionaires are a group of 200 high-net-worth Americans. They have appeared on hundreds of media outlets here and abroad including The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, the PBS NewsHour, The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and many others. The appeared on stage with President Obama during his 2012 Tax Day address.

Proudly "traitors to their class," the Patriotic Millionaires are dedicated to ending the wholesale corruption of our tax code and implementing a fair tax system that can adequately fund our citizens' common interests.

Patriotic Millionaires board chair Morris Pearl was the Managing Director of BlackRock, one of the largest investment firms in the world, before leaving to be the Chairman of our Board. Other members include: the founder of Men's Wearhouse George Zimmer, founder of MOMs Organic Market Scott Nash, several Google engineers including employee number 20 and number 59 David desJardins and Doug Edwards respectively, filmmaker Abigail Disney, textile entrepreneur Great Neck Richman, corrugated cardboard mogul Dennis Mehiel and many other high net worth individuals from across the country.



"While the wealthiest taxpayers will gain financially if Republicans and the president successfully extend the Bush-era tax cuts in Congress, a group of millionaires and business owners said they will be disheartened if they pay less taxes next year," ABC News reported in 2010.

"Members of the Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength, a group of 89 millionaires, petitioned President Obama to allow tax cuts on incomes greater than $1 million to expire at the end of the year, as scheduled.

"Morris Pearl, a managing director with BlackRock and a petition signatory, said he was 'sad' rather than angry at President Obama for agreeing to the proposed tax cuts."
