Why do we care what Warren Buffet says? He isn't running for political office. Just because he has a kind grandpa face, doesn't mean the citizens of the USA should follow what he says.

Buffet still owes the US Treasury over $1,000,000,000 in TAXES and he's fighting the government over this amount.

The public should be concerned with the people we have elected to office, not some gazillionaire's opinion. And that goes for Trump, too.

It's the elected officials we should be concerned about; not celebrities and other billionaires' opinions.

End ALL of Buffets loop holes with Herman Cain's 9-9-9 Plan.

9% on His income.

9% on his businesses.

9% national sales tax.




Enough jacking around with tax code every dam year.

If Buffet actually pays his taxes at a lower rate than his secretary, the IRS needs to investigate him. All of the democrats who sought to work in the odummy administration couldn't be confirmed until they paid all of their back taxes. ...sounds like Buffet fits right in the democrat mold.

Dividends & capital gains are doubled taxed.

1st as corporate profits at the HIGHEST corporate income tax rate in the industrialized WORLD, 35%,

and then again.....

2nd as individual income (THINK BUFFET TAX RATE) when dividends are distributed or stock is sold. THIS IS WHAT BUFFET IS TAXED ON!

His secretary's income is based on her salary, not dividends, capital gains! That's why her taxation is higher.

Buffet did NOT support the Obama 'jobs' bill when it came to taxing those making $250K to $1,000,000!

That's small businesses!

Princess Pelosi and her husband Paul have been hiding behind a Subchapter S Corporation
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/oct/...

In a Subchapter S corporation, the SHAREHOLDERS pay taxes!

Hmmm, maybe we all need to start a Subchapter S Corporation like the millionaire Pelosi family. Their Wealth INCREASED 62% this past year from $21.7 MILLION in 2009 to $43.4 MILLION in 2010!

http://thehill.com/blogs/on-the-money/801-eco... -

Ain't that amazing!

And miraculously, the Paul Pelosi's partner's daughter in this INVESTMENT was 'able' to secure an ambassadorship! Maybe Aunty Nancy helped that along?

And Pelosi's congressional office cost her constitutents $18K+ PER MONTH!

“i hope we can change this!”

They won't find him. He'll be hiding out in the hold of John Kerry's $7 million yacht....with Obama.
