Hey, Bill Gates!

Hey, Bill Gates! You've given money to fight diseases, fund education, and stop gun violence. How about donating to fix our unfair tax system that favors  people like you?


Elizabeth Hanson pointed out that many of Gates’ “charitable” donations have served a corporate agenda; in particular, his support of Common Core and educational testing has served the interests of corporations trying to privatize public schools. But Gates has also funded efforts to fight malaria and has donated to the Negro College Fund, for example.  See http://www.gatesfoundation.org/Who-We-Are/General-Information/Foundation-Factsheet .  In any case, my aim in the image is to plead with Gates to help fight regressive taxation; if I insulted him in the image, he’d be more unlikely to listen to my plea.
