"I have never had a millionaire come to me and say: I need a tax break. I have had them come to me and say: “Frankly, the $100,000 I get a year is de minimis to me. It doesn't make a difference to me.”

So I wonder, when we are cutting Medicaid, when we are cutting virtually every domestic program we can cut, why millionaires get $100,000 in tax breaks a year. It does not make sense. They do not ask for them. They do not need them. It does not really make a difference to them."
~ Senator Diane Feinstein
