The first problem with Buffett's view is that the number of super-rich is too small for higher rates to make much difference to our budget problems.

What a lame excuse.

Then why not reduce taxes on the super rich, since the number of super-rich is too small for lower rates to make much difference to our budget problems.

Yes. Exactly. A flat tax / Fair Tax would do just that.
