Patriotic Millionaires released mobile advertisements throughout New York City and Washington, D.C. on Monday, asking for higher taxes on the rich and supporting radical taxation policies.

The billboards will be placed outside the homes of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell in Washington, D.C., as well as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Business Roundtable offices, the Internal Revenue Service, and the U.S. Treasury, according to the company.

The mobile billboard was delivered to Wall Street, the Federal Reserve Building, the New York office of Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, Bezos’ flat, and 57th Street Billionaires Row in New York City.

President Joe Biden has advocated for the repeal of former President Donald Trump’s tax cuts, which reduced the corporate tax rate, in order to fund a major infrastructure package.

“The billionaires, millionaires and CEOs trying to stop these critical reforms are the biggest threat to our nation’s stability,” Patriotic Millionaires founder Erica Payne said in a statement.

“Their wealth was created in a rigged game, that many of them still cheated in. It’s time for them to pay to repair the damage they have done.”

Each of the mobile billboards displayed different messages. One reads, “Tax me if you can.” Another says, “Tax the Rich, Save America. It is that simple.”

A third billboard includes photos of Bezos, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerburg and Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk.

Patriotic Millionaires is composed of hundreds of high net-worth U.S. residents who say they are committed to progressive tax and economic reforms.
