Secretary of State John Kerry may have just scored a huge windfall thanks to Warren Buffett.

Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and 3G Capital announced Thursday that they are buying Heinz ketchup Co. for $23.3 billion. As part of the deal, the firms agreed to pay a per-share price that’s 20 percent more than the stock’s closing price on Wednesday.

That’s great news for Kerry, who at last check owned $3 million worth of shares in Heinz and could make hundreds of thousands of dollars off of the sale, according to the New York Times. Kerry's connection to Heinz comes through his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, who is an heir to the Heinz fortune.

It is really funny when bonds77 can't see something that is so OBVIOUS that Stevie Wonder can see it.

Two people that are wealthy beyond anyone's wildest imagination, partner in a deal that enriches both even more. Yeah, that is impossible when one of them is a liberal democrat? It is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE for that to happen. LOL

By the way bonds77, while Berkshire is involved, it is Buffet/Kerry-Heinz that are the players in this game. Humans are always involved.(follow the money)

Your hypocrisy is showing again.

Considering where Bond's head is usually located.... him not "seeing it" is perfectly understandable...

Doesn't Berkshire owe millions in unpaid taxes?
Yup - paying their fair-share....

Pretty funny, BD.

SO you're saying that somehow the government is involved with Berkshire PAYING money to buy a company. They're not profiting off it(yet). Kerry, of course, is getting paid off by Berkshire for his shares- because ANY company would spend $23 billion to pay off a guy that has $3 million in shares.

Is that what you're saying? And i'm funny?

The SEC is wrong according to bonds77. They have to be wrong! A liberal democrat would not do anything unlawful.

EXACTLY. Of the 23 BILLION SPENT, you're asserting that John Kerry, Secretary of State, was the one insider trading?

Blackhorse, you're losing your mind. You're trying to state something that doesn't exist. And you're calling me dumb.


Yes, Buffett spent $23 BILLION to make John Kerry happy.

lol again.

but if it is Kerry, how would you like your crow prepared, Bonds?

It won't be. If he's that stupid, then I hope he's not our Secretary of State.

But you two are still holding to the idea that Buffett spent $23 billion to make Kerry a few mil?
