"We ain't a sharp species. We kill each other over arguments about what happens when you die, then fail to see the ******* irony in that." - Justin Halpern
Of course there is nothing hypocritical about Buffett's stance. He's advocating for a change in the tax code that would affect him. He's not trying to exempt himself.
Hypocrisy would be arguing that everyone should be taxed at the same rate, regardless of whether it would have drastically different effects on different people ... and then crying about a disparate effect from a tax on the wealthy.
