Columnist: Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

John Hayward is waiting for liberal elites to put their money where they mouths are:
The great attraction of liberalism is the sanctimony it supplies to true believers. It lets them feel like they're better people, by imposing their morality on lesser beings through compulsive force. This is built right into the name of the "Patriotic Millionaires," which implies that any wealthy person who opposes higher taxes is unpatriotic. Making other people struggle with higher taxes is worth whatever they would have to pay their accountants to dodge the tax increases they advocate. Of course, since a lot of these liberal millionaires have their wealth tucked into assets that would not be taxed, and report relatively little taxable income, they're automatically protected from the burdens they demand on high income.
