    Buffett isn't whining about having his tax-rate increased by 3%. (God forbid!!)

    Why? Because as a patriotic American who is filthy rich, he knows that he can totally afford to pay more in taxes and it won't affect his spending habits one bit.

    like doubling capital gains rates or jacking dividends (which already suffer a 35% cut at the corporate level) going up to 40% from 15%
    Turtle, I believe everyone here who follows the discussion is well aware that you are upset that a possible tax increase for you is in the offing if the President is successful in his proposals. However, your own desire for your own money is not a viable argument for the structure of a fair tax policy for the entire nation.

    Do you have any rational arguments why the proposals of President Obama would be bad for the entire nation - as opposed to a personal inconvenience for yourself? I think that would be a topic that everyone can participate in and we can all then steer clear of personal attacks and remarks about the individual.

    Why do you assume I'm not rich? Because I'm not greedy? As you might have learned from Buffett and the other wealthy people arguing for higher top rates, being rich and greedy don't necessarily go hand in hand. You just happen to be in the greedy hand.

    we all understand that you work for a democrat politician and before that a democrat organ known as a teachers' union and you want policies that allow the dem party more power.

    you think more union power, more income redistribution and more welfare socialism is better for the USA when its better for you

    your policies make this country weak, causes increased dependency and sloth and bloated government

    I haven't heard an alternative motive that passes the laugh test.

    that is probably due to your hearing rather than a lack of answers

    Buffett is a dem. he thinks helping obama's tax schemes helps the dems. the uber rich often prefer a big centralized government that concentrates wealth in the hands of the government. It creates a financial environment that benefits the uber wealthy
