    I gave you the IRS data but obviously that goes right over your head. What is stopping Buffet from paying more in taxes, just write the check? Liberals love to spread their misery equally to everyone else. This has to be an act on your part because data simply destroys you.

    So you want teachers and the rest of us in the working class to work for peanuts with high taxes, but have a voluntary tax for the rich????

    And what happened after the corporations found out that Obama was serious about cutting their corporate welfare? That is my point. Which party is it that is defending continued tax cuts to the top income earners?

    Suggest you learn to read, Warren Buffet can pay whatever amount he wants over and above what he is obligated to pay so instead of whining about paying too little why not just write a check for more?

    Currently 47% of income earners didn't pay ANY Federal Income taxes and all are under 50,000 per year. Your class warfare rhetoric is empty just like the empty suit in the WH.

    You are a lost cause, have a good one. I live in a much different country than you do. People in this country earn money, companies make money, the govt. earns nothing. It is the taxpayers' money first. Not sure where you went to school but please let us all know so we can warn others. There is absolutely nothing independent in your leanings.

    I'm thiking that Buffet's probably full-a-**** on that one. Anyone that has made enough money to know longer qualify for the earned income creadit would agree.

    Warren is either lieing his ass off, or he's doing some serious cheating, or his secretary is making one ****load of money.

    I think where the street Libbos are getting fooled, is that you're not going to hurt billionares with tax hikes. You're going to hurt the folks that are between the earned income credit folks and the billionares with tax hikes; leaving two groups when the dust settles: the billionares with all their money and political clout and all us poor folks.

    Great, a voluntary tax for the the wealthiest and go after the working class to make up the difference.
