The ‘Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Act’

The Club for Growth reports:

There are many liberals who espouse the virtues of big government and say that they would be willing to pay more taxes. I feel they should have the ability to put their money where their mouth is. That is why I am introducing the Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Act, which would amend the Tax Code to allow individuals to make voluntary donations to the federal government above and beyond their normal tax liability.

Seeing how Harry Reid is apparently of the opinion that taxation is voluntary, this sounds like a great idea. I am, however, worried that they won’t be as big on walking the talk as they are on talking the talk. As far as I can tell, kudos are owed to the Clintons who refrained from aggressively using deductions – which means they ended up paying $33 million on income of $109 million.
