    It's entirely possible that he pays his secretary more than $100k/yr, so he might very well pay a lower effective tax rate, even if we don't include his unrealized capital gains.

    But I may have this wrong.
    Buffett has income of millions a year

    he only pays himself 100K in earned income in order to minimize the income tax. He has the power to structure hi salary so as to minimize taxes. His secretary makes over 300K in salary

    He complains about a system he has rigged in his favor and he is a lying asshole

    he is a liar because his dividend income is actually taxed twice but he pretends its only taxed at 15%

    and for someone to have earned income taxed at an EFFECTIVE rate of more than 15% they almost always are well above 100K-meaning they are probably investing some of it and certainly aren't complaining about unearned income being subject to lower rates

    Anyhow, all I see you doing is cherry picking metrics and facts, but I guess everyone does that, including myself. I can just as easily make a list of stuff which indicates you are correct, but I guess that's pointless, and I am sure you are aware of the facts that I would post.
    My issue has always been resume driven and the lack of leadership skills. You say I cherry pick, ok, be specific on what? What exactly has Obama done that you support or that he should get credit for? Can you give me an example of Obama leadership skills?

    But yet you don't have an issue with the government paying for your care through the VA? I'm not dissing your choice, you earned your government paid for care, just making an observation.

    We don't have a state exchange, but the federal exchange offers a couple of dozen different plan choices, and virtually all of our local health care providers accept them, it's just a matter of chosing the policy which as the PPO which you prefer, just like any other insurance, or of course policies can still be purchased direct from the insurance company or through a broker. Nothing has really changed.

    I really go to VA it's only for Service related stuff and not really since at the time me being employed by the government that is one of the benefits they agreed to give me as long as got a Honorable discharge.

    Also the VA is an example of why you really don't want to have the government in charge of health care.

    Could you show the reading audience where you mention "looters" in the comment. Your many comments over the time I've been participating in this forum just might lead one to believe you had just a few other groups in mind when you wrote that earlier comment. Advocating murder does not lead to a peaceful society despite all the rhetoric spewing forth from the ammosexuals.

    Either I'm right or you're wrong.
