Warren Buffett is laughing his head off....that % of taxes he is paying is just CAPITOL GAINS.....I doubt his "secretary" is paying anywhere close to his capitol gains taxes. Both Obama and Buffett are world class jerks!

"It's not just millionaires who'd pay more under President Obama's latest plan to combat the deficit."

Obama doesn't give a rat's rear end about ombatting the deficit - but this DOES give him an excuse to raise taxes, which has always been his goal.

How about privatizing airport security, ditch the TSA altogether.

"Another proposal would charge $4 an acre on non-producing oil and gas leases on federal lands, raising $1 billion over a decade. The idea is to prod energy companies to get their leases into production or give them up and allow others to develop them."

And since this administration won't issue any drilling permits, they will just give them up ensuring foreign oil dependence and European level fuel prices.

“Why (would) the administration ... propose a Social Security payroll tax holiday in its jobs bill, but simultaneously suggest a tax increase for middle-class federal workers?” asked Joseph Beaudoin, president of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association. :

Because he’s a lying SOS. Wow military retirees get the millionaire treatment. And Airline passengers, well now you pay to get some stranger to feel you.

This administration is WAY OUT OF CONTROL.
They remind me of the 6th grader that takes daddy’s car and drives and high speeds swerving aimlessly on the road.

Seems to me he should be happy with sexually molesting the air line passengers and not feel the need to shake them down, too.

And penalizing the military retirees (whites) is a snazzy community organizer idea.

He’s also targeting medicare again. Kill them ole white people.

His secretary is probably a millionaire and in the top tax bracket.

Your forgetting that Buffett and Bill Gates along with a lot of other billionaires put their wealth in tax free trust funds. They still get to vote the stock , feel rich and it forever pays no taxes. If they want the rich to pay their fair share eliminate tax free trust retro active to Jan 1. To make matters worse Buffett has dozens of lawyers fighting the irs over a 1 billion tax bill the irs says he owes. He should be charged with lying to congress. He spends millions not to pay taxes and complains he dosent pay enough.

So, on the one hand, so much regulation they cannot drill, and on the other, tax them for not drilling?? November, 2012 cannot come soon enough!!

***Air travelers, federal workers, military retirees, wealthier Medicare beneficiaries and people taking out new mortgages are among those who would pay more...***

Military retirees? They don’t get enough compensation, including respect, as it is. They stand in harms way on a daily basis, many times come home draped in a flag or maimed, so LEAVE THEM ALONE, O’SLAMMY!

The housing industry is in shambles, and they want to make it more expensive for the first time buyer? Nobody is that stupid.
