Video: "Patriotic Millionaires" Strangely Stingy With Own Money

Remember our excruciatingly self-righteous "patriotic millionaire" friends?  Well they're back, hectoring Congress -- in person this time! -- to raise taxes on the wealthy.  (Have they mentioned how awesomely loaded they are?)  The Daily Caller's Michelle Fields decided to mosey over to the Capitol and offer these conscientious, selfless one-percenters the opportunity to begin to live up to the standard they're demanding be imposed on others, under penalty of law.  This video is chock full of pure limousine liberal gold:


While we're on the subject of laugh-out-loud hypocrisy, the Daily Show joins its cousin Colbert in ruthlessly mocking the dolts at Occupy Wall Street.  Stick with it -- the iPad guy toward the end is the best:

UPDATE - Well-off liberals are often totally cool with higher taxes because they know they can pay experts to help them avoid paying an increased burden.  That's why soak-the-rich tax hikes rarely fulfill the projected revenue increases.  Conservatives want to close out loopholes and special carve-outs, broaden the tax base, then lower and flatten rates.  That might help eliminate (perfectly legal, but ridiculous) scenarious like this:
