'Raise our taxes': U.S. millionaires ask Congress

WASHINGTON - Nearly 140 millionaires asked a divided U.S. Congress
Wednesday to increase their taxes for the sake of the nation.

"Please do the right thing," the entrepreneurs and business
leaders wrote President Barack Obama and congressional leaders, noting
that they benefited from a sound economy and now want others to do so.
"Raise our taxes."


The letter was signed by 138 members of "Patriotic Millionaires
for Fiscal Strength." The group was created a year ago during a failed
bid to persuade Congress to end tax cuts for millionaires enacted under
Republican former President George W. Bush.

get together as a collective and just send in one big check. That would even reduce the cost of any paperwork and the money could be used right away rather than be frittered away in the IRS collection system.

......the various Republican plans to jack up taxes on the working and barely-above-poverty-level classes in order to spare those million- and billionaires a tax increase can also be voluntary. Sound good?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
