patriotism to be in the "Tax Me More" club.
Marilynne Robinson, a Pulitzer Prize winning author and Professor at University of Iowa, said she’s happy to pay higher taxes.
“I’ve prospered a great deal from living in this country, from things like public education and so on,” she said. “I want to help other people also prosper and enjoy living in this country. As far as I’m concerned, it’s patriotism.”
It would actually be patriotism if you wrote a check now, without being forced to under the law and the scientific community is united in that fact.
Robinson's taxpayer paid salary has ranged from $56,374.98 to $151,500.00 over the last six years.
Not quite Warren Buffet money, but she shares the same principles of all showing and no doughing.
It should come as no surprise that her Pulitzer Prize was for Fiction.
