    Warren Buffett on Taxes

    "But--the--way the tax system has gotten tilted toward guys like me over the last 2O years--as opposed to the middle class, you know, in my view, is a little OBSCENE."

    Unfortunately S&L is completely clueless about this, and thinks there is some great liberal plan afoot to rob the deserved rich and give to the undeserved poor. Quite the contrary.

    I'm just wondering what President Havakasha is going to do with the money??

    If it's not just, and not fair, then how are you, the President, going to fix it? How do you "fix" income inequality?

    Your Excellency S&L.
    I thought Obama was President and Warren Buffett was just telling the truth.
    You seem to be avoiding the fact that you are unfortunately completely
    clueless about whats happened for the past 20 years. I thought Buffett spelled it out quite clearly.

    If i had my dithers I would spend some of that money on infrastructure,
    and use some of it to bring down the debt.

    How about you?

    You consistently cite "the rich", and income inequality. What's the relationship? What's your point?

    I would use it to pay down the debt, but keep in mind, I'm indifferent toward income inequality. You are not, correct?

    I have posted several articles here in the past on why the tax structure has been skewed over the years to help the "rich" (the super wealthy etc.) and hurt the middle class. That is the point and Buffett's point. I will post more if you want?

    "But--the--way the tax system has gotten tilted toward guys like me over the last 2O years--as opposed to the middle class, you know, in my view, is a little OBSCENE."


    Do you refute Buffett's point? If so please go ahead and do so here.
