    Which would not solve the problem that he sees with how the rules are. Sorry, explaining why the rules are flawed does not make you a hypocrite.

    Oddly, as much as you insult Buffett, you have yet to actually counter his point. You just spew out insults and think you have made a point.

    This is an open challenge for anyone to try: Bring it!
    When people cannot counter some one's point, they are forced to simply go after the person. It's a sign of a weak position.

    What do you expect? His position is based ENTIRELY on emotion. Not one iota of financial economic analysis is involved when he writes such comments.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Are we defining the revocation of exemptions as a backdoor tax increase?

    Or in other words -- given that Berkshire is a bellweather for the economya as a whole -- Buffett wants Democrats to win because Democrats are better for the economy.

    Duh.

    Typical conservative hypocrisy. If someone points out that many Republicans who vehemently opposed the stimulus later posed for pictures handing out big stimulus checks, the inevitable reply is that what?

    Oh, you mean the complex tax code; its loopholes, and its tax exemptions.

    I agree. Let's have a flat tax with a flat percentage tax rate. The rich would inevitability pay the most and everyone would carry their fair share based on their ability to pay it.

    Do you agree?
