    I don't follow you. He said the rich should pay a higher tax rate. He didn't agree to pay illegal taxes. From your own article:
    "Berkshire Hathaway Inc., this week sued the Internal Revenue Service over what it called an "illegal" $643 million tax assessment." We will have to wait to see what the court determines.







    you forgot john kerry. And most of the senate..... The top of which are democrats....

    Everyone pays the same capitol gains tax no?

    U haz the class envy.


    Or, I haz a brain. Only the richest people have income that is primarily from investments. Continuing their tax breaks are of no value to the working class of this country.





    Sure i do, govenmental theft. And out forfathers? Please proof please. :

    Buffett has never suggested he is ok with paying illegal taxes.









    What percentage of Buffett's secretary's income is from capitol gains???
    how did most of the people that the parasite class want to tax more benefit from the war? I sure did not. I am a competitive shooter-the wars drove up the cost of ammunition big time

    the Buffett rule applies to income taxes. Not state sales taxes, gasoline taxes, or FICA. and you are lying again. Most of those who are in the top 2% don't live off of investments

    as usual you try to use some uber wealthy with no earned income as an excuse to soak anyone making more than a million. Most of those who "work" for a living (Union speak for blue collar) don't pay an effective federal income tax rate anywhere Near the 24% or so that the average top one percenter pays

    Try rephrasing so your post makes sense.

    An inconvenient take on the facts for those that wish to idiotically continue class warfare, but not dishonest at all. If they were you could prove what is dishonest here:

    "Everyone but you, apparently, knows that FIT makes up for less than half of federal taxes. The rich that earn most of their income from investments pay a lower total tax rate than do those who work for a living. Most Americans agree with the presidents, Obama and Reagan, that this is not right."

    I never said any of those things.

    as usual you try to use some uber wealthy with no earned income as an excuse to soak anyone making more than a million. Most of those who "work" for a living (Union speak for blue collar) don't pay an effective federal income tax rate anywhere Near the 24% or so that the average top one percenter pays.
    Those making more than a million a year have received more tax breaks and tax loopholes over the last 30 years than have the middle class, so if you are looking for sympathy you are barking up the wrong tree Turtledude.

    those making more than a million dollars a year pay more in income taxes in 6 months than 50+million americans will ever pay.

    I don't have a duty to fund people like you who are unwilling or unable or not skilled enough to pay for your own existence.

    Just the facts ma'am, "effective tax rates for high-earning Americans are either at their lowest level since 1960 or at least very close to their lowest level."

    The GOP war on Iraq was on behalf of big oil, the most profitable industry in the history of the world.
