Please Donate Today to the Helpless Multimillionaires Relief Fund (Satire)
That's it, I've had it! I cannot stand back and hear the plight and suffering of the wealthiest 1% of Americans without taking any action to address it. It is just unfair and unjust that President Obama and the Democrats are waging war against this group of people. In order to counteract the deadly effects this could have on the rich, I am setting up the Helpless Multi-millionaires Relief Fund. If you want to make a real difference with your money, this is the place you should give to. Please consider the situation of those who desperately need your help.
Congressman John Fleming (R-LA) has had success as the owner of a chain of Subway Restaurants and UPS stores, amassing a profit of $6.3 million in 2010. All of that could be stalled if President Obama and the Democrats raise taxes to the level prior to the 2003 Bush Tax Cuts.
This 4.6% tax cut could dramatically affect Congressman Fleming who is struggling to get by as it is. The struggles of Congressman Fleming were evident when he told Chris Jansing on MSNBC last year, "By the time I pay 500 employees and I pay rent, I have only $600,000 left over. With that remaining amount, on the one hand I feed my family and on the other I reinvest in my business. So by the time I feed my family, I have maybe $400,000 left over." I get emotional every time I hear the struggles of Congressman Fleming. If President Obama raises taxes to the levels prior to the 2003 Bush Tax Cuts, Congressman Fleming will then only have $383,000 left over. Please do not let him suffer.
Fox News Host Bill O'Reilly is also one of the victims of this class warfare. As O'Reilly said on his show last September, "If you tax achievement, then the top achievers are going to pack it in. Again let's take me. My corporations employ scores of people. They depend on me to do what I do. If Barack Obama taxes me oppressively, I don't know how much longer I am going to do this. I like my job, but there comes a point that taxation becomes impressive." God forbid that O'Reilly would have to quit his Fox job over this unethical tax increase, which if he makes a salary of $2 million would require him to pay an overwhelming $80,000. One can only hang their head in disbelief that someone would be the victim of such a cruel and heinous act.
If stories like these do not move you to give, then what will? We must speak for those who are helpless and destitute and relief them of this unlawful government oppression. Set aside some of your hard earned income today so that helpless multi-millionaires can have their fears alleviated once and for all.
