"Tax us, the rich, and tax us now," an open letter by the "Patriotic Millionaires" said. The letter, published Monday, included actor Mark Ruffalo and heiress Abigail Disney among its signatories. The group, known as "Patriot Millionaires," is calling on the elite attendees of this year's World Economic Forum in Davos to tax them more.

"Tax us, the rich, and tax us now," the letter says. Actor Mark Ruffalo and heiress Abigail Disney are among its signatories. The group argues that it would take a "complete overhaul" of the international tax system. The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote on a bill to overhaul the tax system this week.

Patriotic Millionaires: "Restoring trust requires taxing the rich" Some of the millionaires even staged pro-taxation protests at Davos over the weekend. This latest call from the rich to be taxed more comes as rising prices ratchet up the cost of living.

Oxfam estimated that nearly million people could fall into extreme poverty at a similar rate in 2022. Julia Davies, founding member of Patriotic Millionaires U.K., said that "global crises are not accidental, they are the result of bad economic design" "It is equally scandalous that they allow extreme wealth to sit in the hands of so few people," she said.
