Millionaires on taxes: Government infrastructure drives business

Founders of Patriotic Millionaires, Jerry Fiddler and Garrett Gruener explain the principle behind sharing the wealth through paying higher taxes and how government resources including infrastructure and public schools helped drive their successes in business. "Anyone who believes they're self-made, at this point, is kidding themselves... One of the things that has gotten lost in the tax debate is the responsibility and actually pride. You ought to be proud to be able to contribute back." Tune in Weeknights at 9:00/8:00c on Current TV

1. I wonder if self-made millionaires are more likely to be Democrats

A lot of the Republicans seem to fall into the "old money" category. Some of them think they are self-made, conveniently forgetting that their grandfathers made the original fortune. Those who started from poverty or middle class roots may have more Democratic leanings.
