1/29/10 Bill Gates made the largest ever single charitable donation when he pledged $10billion (£6billion) to develop and distribute vaccines. The Microsoft founder hopes the money, to be spent over the next ten years through his foundation, will save the lives of more than eight million children in the world's poorest countries. 'We must make this the decade of vaccines,' he said. 'Vaccines already save and improve millions of lives. 'Innovation will make it possible to save more children than ever before.'
They still don't choose to pay the full rate to the government,
The are paying the full rate - at exactly what it is. What are they supposed to do? Make up a rate? Do you think the government accepts overpayments? The government is required, by law, to return any amount collected which is over and above that which is legally owed.
If they wanted to be genuine they would pay themselves the 'rate; they are recommending for the 'rich' if they want to give what is left over to Charity good for them.
How does anyone "pay themselves" anything?
By your same reasoning if anyone really believes that a sonogram will dissuade a pregnant woman from having an abortion they would arrange to pay for the uncovered cost of each sonogram out of their own pocket.
My criticism stands.
And my refusal to accept it as valid still stands, too.

The donation causes huge concerns for pro-life advocates as the Gates Foundation has given the Planned Parenthood Federation of America abortion business almost $12.5 million since 1998, including funds to persuade teenagers to support abortion and to lobby the United Nations to advance pro-abortion proposals.
The Gates foundation has also given nearly $21 million to the International Planned Parenthood abortion business over the last seven years. The funds have gone to promote abortions in third-world nations and to set up pro-abortion family planning centers in South America, Africa and eastern European nations.
Ironically Mrs Gates is supposed to be a practicing Catholic....
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
