Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates told the BBC that he wouldn’t think twice about paying more taxes, as the US is already struggling with a huge deficit.

"The United States has a huge budget deficit, so taxes are going to have to go up," he said. "And I certainly agree that they should go up more on the rich than everyone else. That's just justice."
