    2) he still pays 1000 times more in taxes than she does-does anyone seriously believe he uses more in government services than he pays in taxes

    3) the dems and other class warfare advocates always like to use Buffett as a prototype for those who are targeted for tax hike soaking-those making 200K to a couple million a year. That is the main target of the obamatards.
    Other than the BS in your post I will say this: Taxation isn't just on salary. If you think it is you're ignorant. And furthermore the middle and lower class do not have the means to play a shell game with their income like the upper class elite including the corporations that keep their headquarters off shore.

    the top 1% pay 40% of the income tax and practically all of the death tax

    they pay more for each dollar of government services received than any other group

    and 47% of people don't pay any income tax and those making under about 117,000 a year are essentially net tax consumers-its that income level where someone starts paying more in income taxes than they use in the services paid for by income taxes

    I note that its funny watching those who aren't high net taxpayers constantly presuming to know more about economics and gaining wealth than those who are. Like many class warfare advocates, you want to lump all of those targeted for the clinton-pelosi-obama tax hikes into the bill gates class when the top rates hit those making 200K a year not just those with say LeBron James level salaries

    try to refute what I said and spare me the sanctimonious bs

    Middle and lower class people don't have to play shell games with their incomes, because they usually qualify for the earned income credit.

    What he said is close to true if we are talking simply personal income tax but of course everybody pays sales tax, taxes on things like cell phone services, property taxes, etc., I don't know the exact percentages but it is true that the wealthy shoulder the majority of the tax burden and should. But the question is when does that burden become so high it affect others in free market society. Buy nice cars, boats, building home, etc,. and it employs a lot of people who don't have to live off the government. Why is it you cannot see the tremendous waste in government spending and realize that it too is keeping a lot of people in poverty. Are you not jealous of all those CEO's in Congress (Senators) that are getting wealthy spending our money?

    libs whine that people who pay far more in taxes then they ever use in government services use "loopholes" or engage in tax evasion but never note that the biggest loophole of all is not paying taxes and having others fund your government services and yet you still have a vote as valuable as any billionaire
