$1 million in taxes should equal 1 million votes, says billionaire

A billionaire put it pretty simply: If you’re paying $1 million in tax money, then you probably should get 1 million votes.
That billionaire is Tom Perkins, a tech industry leader, who was recently under fire for a letter he sent to the Wall Street Journal. He wasn’t joking about his comment either, as he said that the 1 percent of America is contributing in ways that much of the country doesn’t understand, according to Mother Jones.
"You don't get to vote unless you pay $1 in taxes,” Perkins said, according to Mother Jones. “If you pay $1 million in taxes, you get a million votes.”
