Good idea. I'd like ALL of Buffett's money and fur shur I wouldn't be complaining about taxes ~ particularly not in the Bahamas!

I think the old fart has gotten senile and doesn't know what to do with money.

Buffett just invested $5 BILLION in Bank of America. I know I read BAC was in trouble. (Follow the money).

Now why didn't Buffett just write that $5 Bil check to the IRS???

voted but if those who voted yes were told it would take money form their boss who might lay off some workers then I wonder if they still vote yes.

HELL NO WOULD THEY

If CNN did their job and stopped being biased and explained to their viewers the history of this and how it all works then the yes voted would not be has high but of course bumper sticker slogans for the ignorant and dummies

Looks like KOS has their people hitting this pretty hard. So sad people jump in line behind this thing without knowing the facts, specifically that it turns out Obama’s claim of millionaires paying less of a percentage in income taxes than the middle class is another OBAMA BIG LIE. As of 2008, the year such data was last available, those making a million and above PAY an average 23.3% income tax rate. Those making $500K-$1 million pay 24.1%. Those making $200-500K pay 19.6%. Those making $100-$200K pay 12.7%. Those making $50K-$100K pay 8.9%. Those making $30K-$50K pay 7.2%.

OBAMA AND HIS DISHELVED SOCK PUPPET BUDDY, WARREN BUFFET, ARE FILTHY DISGRACEFUL LIARS! The IRS’s own data proves Obama’s claims are fraudulent and deceitful.

“Now why didn’t Buffett just write that $5 Bil check to the IRS???”

Rumor has it that Buffet “sold” his name to be put on that bill in exchange for husseins “forgiveness” of Buffets back taxes. I’d sure like to know if it’s more than a rumor.

"I know I read BAC was in trouble"

Here are the latest figures: http://banktracker.msnbc.msn.com/banks/north-carolina/charlotte/bank-of-america-national-association/

Capital plus reserves are $143 Billion

Total Troubled Assets are $ 36 Billion

The FDIC is currently letting banks with more bad loans than Capital stay open, so in comparison it's not in that bad of shape.

So, 0bama is saying that Buffett’s secretary makes between $500,000 and $1,000,000. I really doubt that!

The financial services sector which includes FNM and FRE was primarily responsible for profiting enormously in the 2003-2008 housing bubble period while taking much risk, which is all well and good....except while their profits were privatized, they were going bankrupt, and their losses were then socialized to the rest of us through the bailouts and their cronies on in the Federal Reserve.

They should have been personally bankrupted but American taxpayers were forced to bail them out because both Parties are beholden to their money and influence. I’m strongly in favor of forcing this financial services club to pay tax rates similar to the 1950s that will be dedicated to reducing the USA debt.

If these thieves move offshore they lose their citizenship and their right to ever return to the USA just like Clinton’s buddy Marc Rich. The banksters need to be held fully accountable to tax payers and give back their ill conceived gains times three. We know Congress is afraid to do it.

Still 75%/25%. Class warfare (and ignorance) is alive and well in this country. I was reading an article on this, and it mentioned that only .3% of earners will be affected, as if that makes it ok. If that’s the case, how ‘bout we tax Congress and the Executive (and the liberals in the Judicial) at 100%? It’s less than .3% of the population! So it must be ok, right??
