I bet Phil Goff would say no too

People like Phil Goff, Gareth Morgan and Selwyn Pellett like to tell everyone that the rich need to pay higher taxes. That higher taxes will solve all our problems. The thing is they arrange and structure themselves so that they don’t practice what they preach.

The next time Phil Goff talks about the wealthy paying more taxes why don’t reporters ask him if he would voluntarily do so if National won the election and kept tax rates the same.

In the US taxpayers can voluntarily pay more tax by filling out a simple form. Watch what happens when someone goes up to the US equivalent of Selwyn Pellett and asks them to pay more taxes.

Two dozen “patriotic millionaires” traveled to the national’s capital on Wednesday to demand that Congress raise taxes on wealthy Americans.

The Daily Caller attended their press conference with an iPad, which displayed the Treasury Department’s donation page, to find out if any of the “patriotic millionaires” were willing to put their money where their mouth is.
