Google millionaire asks Obama “Would you please raise my taxes?”

President Obama was in Silicon Valley Monday pitching his jobs plan to a townhall sponsored by LinkedIn. When the audience had a chance to jump in, a man by the name of Doug Edwards had one question – “Would you please raise my taxes?”

Edwards said he was unemployed by choice after the success of his small start-up – a search engine. Turns out Edwards is the former Director of Consumer Marketing and brand management at Google.

In response, Obama took a cue from Elizabeth Warren: “So often the tax debate gets framed as ‘class warfare’ and look…as I said at the outset, America’s success is premised on individuals, entrepreneurs having a great idea, going out there and pursuing their dreams and making a whole lot of money in the process. And that’s great, that’s part of what makes America so successful. But as you just pointed out, we’re successful because somebody invested in our education, somebody built schools, somebody created incredible universities… We benefited from somebody somewhere making an investment in us, and I don’t care who you are, that’s true of all of us.”



If you agree with Doug Edwards and Warren Buffett that it’s time to ask millionaires to pay their fair share, click here to sign our petition.
