    Good point. He already has all the money he needs. He isn't even leaving very much for his kids. He wants to be the Dem hero.

    That has to be one of the silliest posts I've seen lately.

    Buffett is great on investment advice but lousy on tax policy advice. If he wants to pay more in taxes he can write a check to the US Treasury [1]. Not surprisingly he doesn't, instead he chooses to give generously to charity [2]. If the government is so great at helping people why is Buffett giving his money to charities instead of the government? Maybe it's because individuals are more successful using their own money to help people than the government is.

    And he still pays a larger percentage of his income in taxes than his secretary.

    When I see posts from pbrauer, I start wanting Will Rockwell back.

    Buffet probably has millions in cash stuffed away somewhere that the IRS doesn't even know about.

    Do you have an opinion on what Warren Buffet said in the video or would you rather just dish out ad homonyms?

    BTW, my email shows that you edited you original post to make it more personal.

    Who gives a **** what Buffett says?

    If he wants to give more of his money to the government, he is perfectly free to do so.

    I do, he is a billionaire who says the wealthy should be paying higher taxes. So far I've only heard from folks who think or wish they will be wealthy some day and don't want to be taxed at all.
