    More likely that the ultra wealthy love power and some, like Buffett-see a bigger government is a faster path to more power especially when the head of the government is beholden to Buffett.

    Many of the uber wealthy prefer money be concentrated in few hands because that makes it more efficient for them.

    Were you inconsistent in your posting 6 years ago or something?

    Re: Buffett to Host Obama Fundraiser in New York

    I'm confused. Isn't it a good thing for a private person to invest in a huge failing company so that they can, hopefully, save jobs before the government has to step in and help? Hopefully, Buffett isn't going to do something shady with this business deal, but why is it that it is assumed that Buffett is going to do something shady here?

    So which should we hope for, private businessmen/businesses investing in failing companies or government bailouts?
