    Because Bammy and the Left keep making it an issue.

    It's called Class Warfare.....and they've been using it since the turn of the Century.

    The people that use it the most have Old Money.

    So, the lack of an extra contribution to taxes, that is so small, compared to the total numbers as to be meaningless is somehow evidence of a lack of morality/character/whatever it is you happen to be complaining about?

    The practical utility of paying a small tax rate for a single individual is so meaningless that this is a nonissue.

    So paying the legal tax rate is avoiding it?

    Ahhh, here we go...your Leaders are supreme hypocrites.....as someone else said....for them its ALWAYS do as I say...not as I do.

    I am still waiting for one LEFTY to show where they have EVER sent anything "extra" in.

    Sorry, the true "nonsense" lies in the incessant whine that the "Rich" don't pay their "fair share".


    ....and that the ONLY answer anyone on the Left make the rich pay for everything....sorry....but it's true.

    Now let Bammy GIVE everything but his Presidential Salary to the IRS and perhaps I'll listen to him when he is crying about the "other" rich folk.

    You obviously seem to be missing the point of what I am saying.

    Here is a hint, its about the practical effect of an action. If an action provides no practical benefit to a cause, the moral justification for it is diminished. Meaning, for there to be a greater moral force, an action would have to be done collectively (based on how this particular situation (meaning fiscal policy) is structured), which is the reasoning behind adjusting tax rates. If one person doing something makes practically no difference, then there is no point in doing it as does not create goodness.

    Why did you just bring up his Ivy League background? What difference does that make? Does it take a ivy league education to see that he should act according to his beliefs?

    As for the parent issue, he feels the money is extra, not needed, it wouldn't be irresponsible to pay more on that ground.


    Making a statement like that gets his point across to the extent it has to be get across, actually giving back his money would be over the top.
    It would be about doing what he believes.


    People can't be consistently expected to act against their economic self-interest.
    If they believe in higher taxes they are expected to do just that.

    That's why he's appealing to society to act on their economic self-interest and pass the burden of taxes to the wealthy.
    That doesn't include himself apparently.

    No...sorry, it's youwho seem to be missing the point

    Leadership.....not whining....and Bammy's ONLY action is to blame others for everything...you give the Bamster a pass as he decries other people for doing the same thing he does within the Rules of the Tax Code...it ain't the "revenue" skippy...it's the spending.

    Well, other than the fact that your post is not completely coherent (or I am having trouble with your odd grammar), if one wishes to change the tax code, than that is a separate issue from paying taxes. Ultimately one issue is about the structure of something while the other issue would be about adherence to that structure. So given that, I still do not see a good basis for your complaint, only accusations that seem to bare little connection (Obama blames everyone for everything, spending vs revenue problems as examples), as far as I can tell.

    It is not always a good idea to do something personally when doing something personally won't make much of a difference in attacking a problem. Wasted effort does noone any good and does not serve any cause.
