Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another letter from Progressive Secretary.

This letter supports campaigns by the Daily KOS, Americans for Tax Fairness, and others. It asks Congress to pass the Millionaires' Surtax. The surtax will affect people earning more than $1 million a year ($2 million for married couples). It would affect only the richest 0.2% of Americans.

This tax aims to make our tax laws fairer. Recently, ProPublica discovered that the 25 richest Americans paid a "true tax rate" below 3.5% between 2014 and 2018. That rate was far less than the median American household, which paid around 14% annually in federal taxes while earning approximately $70,000.

Our endlessly widening wealth and income gaps destabilize our economy and threaten our democracy. The Millionaires Surtax is a sensible plan to restore fairness to the tax code, fight rising inequality, and fund essential priorities for the American people,

The wealthiest Americans today are severely under-taxed. ProPublica has discovered that the 25 richest Americans paid a “true tax rate” below 3.5% between 2014 and 2018, while the average taxpayer paid four times as much. The Millionaires Surtax is long overdue.

America’s wealthiest citizens are going to continue exploiting loopholes until they are closed. Please enact the Millionaires Surtax.
