    Again, let us discuss the policies and issues here rather than the persons and personalities who make the posts. My occupation - or yours - or any other poster - is irrelevant to the merits of a national tax policy.

    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
    So your theory is that Buffett supports higher taxes on the wealthy because it benefits the wealthy.... But you oppose higher taxes on the wealthy because it would harm the wealthy. That makes a lot of sense....

    LOL Gibson doesn't understand what happens when you lower the capital gains tax. Sure the revenues will increase the following year. That's because those people will hold on to their capital assets until the lower tax rate is in effect. Overall though, the tax revenues are less than they would have been if the rates were not changed.

    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.
    All he has to do is give himself a $3,000,000 salary (not out of line with the industry) as opposed to a $100K salary.

    If you listen and watch what was said, right at the beginning of the debate, the moderator says to Barrack Obama that he said on CNBC that he would raise the capital gains tax. BHO did not deny this. He only later gave reasons for increasing the capital gains tax. One of these reasons was "fairness".

    Are you denying Barrack Obama said he would not raise capital gains taxes when Barrack Obama did not deny the charge? It seems you are in deeper denial than BHO himself!

    Yeah he does. He corrects the moderator and says "What I said was that I would look at raising the capital gains tax". He even emphasizes the words "look at" so there isn't any confusion... It's at 0:48...

    Denying that Obama said he would not raise capital gains? What? He said he would look at raising them and walked through the situations in which he would raise them. It isn't confusing... Just watch it again maybe?

    Based on his recent investment in BAC perhaps he should be paid zero. As a matter of fact it would not surprise me to see stockholder lawsuits. He said he came up with the idea while taking a bath, not exactly what the due diligence his stockholders derserve before making a $5 billion investment.
