Bill Gates Said He Should Be Paying More Taxes

Published : 2/20/2018

In an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said his taxes weren't high enough.

Gates, who is the second-richest person in the world according to Bloomberg, said the latest tax overhaul did too much to benefit wealthy Americans like him. In an unusual moment you won't hear from your average U.S. citizen, Gates said he should be getting taxed more, not less.

"It was not a progressive tax bill, it was a regressive tax bill," Gates said. "People who were wealthier tended to get dramatically more benefits than the middle class or those who were poor."
