Bill Gates claims he doesn't pay enough tax

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has claimed he doesn't pay enough tax, and says wealthy Americans should contribute more in order to solve the deficit problem.

This follows the State of the Union address in which Barack Obama called for the rich to aid with the growing deficit problem in the United States by increasing taxes for those who can afford it.

Speaking on BBC World, Gates said taxing the rich, was "just justice".

Gates also says in the video that everyone should take responsibility for the deficit, which includes higher taxes for the rich and concludes that he probably isn't paying as much as he should.

What do you think? Does Bill Gates already do enough, or does he need to do more? Let us know in the comments below.
