You won't see this in the US

Top executives from some of France's most successful companies including L'Oreal, Total and Danone are following the lead of billionaire investor Warren Buffett by offering to pay a one-off tax to help their government tackle its worsening debt load.
The 16 executives, also including the heads of car maker Peugeot-Citroen and Air France-KLM, said in an open letter that "at a time when the public deficits and the prospect of worsening government debt are threatening the future of France and Europe" they consider it "necessary to contribute."

The Obama administration set up a program where taxpayers can increase their contribution as a donation. I think I will set some time aside for all you socialists to do just that by providing links to it with instructions. The minute I see you guys post your receipts I may actually listen to what you have to say. Until then you guys who want higher taxes are just so totally full of it to bear it no mind.

Setting aside TD's conspiracies, it's not really surprising that the heads of these organisations want the present status quo to continue is it? If europe implodes everyone looses, but they loose more and some people may be inclined to seek someone to take the blame.

What conspiracy? There is a program I posted about it some time ago.
