Here we go again. Elites decry for higher taxes on themselves without voluntarily donating their money to the IRS coffers

We are going to let you in on a little secret... there is nothing stopping you, I, or anyone from making a charitable gift to the U.S. government to help pay down the budget deficit in any amount you see fit.  So when Bill Gates came out recently and whined to pundits at CNN that the government should be making him and other wealthy Americans pay more in taxes, immediately one should look beyond this rhetoric to what they are truly trying to say.

One of the world's richest men, Bill Gates, says he should pay more in taxes and urged the US authorities to require other billionaires to contribute “significantly higher” amounts. 
“I need to pay higher taxes. I've paid more taxes – over $10 billion – than anyone else, but the government should require the people in my position to pay significantly higher taxes,” Microsoft founder said in an interview with CNN. – Russia Today
Ironic wouldn't you say, coming from a billionaire who put most of his money into a non-profit charity so he could still spend it as he saw fit, but without having to pay anymore taxes than he has to under the myriad of legal loopholes.
