The Oracle of Omaha is one of several billionaires to back her.
Hillary Clinton may be having a tough time reaching average American voters, but shes having no trouble courting billionaires.
On Monday afternoon, Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett delivered a speech at a Hillary Clinton campaign event in his hometown, a few months after endorsing the Democratic nominee for president.
...In October 2014, Buffett gave $25,000, the most hes donated to benefit any single candidate, to a Super PAC dedicated to helping Clinton, called Ready for Hillary. To be sure, Buffett has given sums totaling $30,000 or more to the Democratic National Committee, according to FEC records.
Of course, Buffett has also aided Clintons campaign by holding fundraising events for the Democratic nominee. Politico reported in January that Buffett held a fundraiser for Clinton that charged $33,400 per person.

Warren Buffett owns the ABC TV station in Miami, by the way: WPLG-TV.
Warren Buffett knows that if he supports Hillary, she will do him favors. Likewise with the Koch Brothers.
These Billionaires know who can be bought, and they know that Trump is not going to trade favors for money.
Trying to buy a WEALTH EXEMPTION.
“I’ll mouth the words and be okay. They’ll MAKE it ok, FOR ME...”
“Sucking up to the 1/10 of 1%...Hitlery and the Democrat Party. “
Yet when you poll people they will say the Republicans are the party of the rich and Wall Street and Democrats understand and care about the problems of working people like them.
BUffet thinks income taxes should be sky high because he doesn’t pay any since he never realizes any income on his billions of dollars of investments and just hangs onto them.
He probably wants to stay out of jail. I should not be surprised to find an investigation shows that he has done many illegal acts under the Obama administration.
George Soros, Warren Beffett, Rupert Murdoch, etc..
Do any of these people ever DIE?! They go on and on and on. They are all in their mid to late eighties yet continue to inflict the Earth with their presence. Be gone to your eternal rewards already. Rewards or deserts, just be gone!
If Warren Buffett and the Democrats were serious about income inequality they would be demanding an end to favorable tax treatment for “carried interest”. They would also favor an asset tax, an end to family trusts, and they would be distributing their accumulated wealth to the poor today.
Warren is reported to have a net worth of $65 billion. He is 85 years old. If he truly believe the system is unfair, why doesn’t he give away $64 billion to those he feels have been mistreated? Keep a billion to tide him over until his death.
They would rather be bought (here on earth and sell their soul as well) then just pay a little more taxes?
Buffet is a Fascist, and I mean that in the dictionary definition sense of the word. Or perhaps he’d prefer the more modern term, corporatist. Sound’s more friendly.
Agree. He makes money selling out American workers in the current establiahed rigged system. Trump threatens his kingdom. The droves of foreign workers are replacing Americans at every level. They sign confidential agreements to not tell they were fired. Warren does this to Americans and challenges Trump to see his tax return. Shouting Hillary Hillary for president. Makes my stomach turn!
Commie lib billionaires know that the Clintoon Crime Family will keep the money rolling in to the wealthy.
It’s money in the Bank of The Clinton Foundation
Buffett is a predator - he gets rich by buying up distressed assets and waiting for them to recover and appreciate in value - of course he wants to see this country hurt so it’ll be cheap to buy - and what’ll hurt the country more than a continuation of the Obama presidency....
A Koch cried ‘blood libel’ when accused of supporting Hillary.
Looks like I was wrong
“”Income inequality?” Please define it.”
I have no issue with income inequality. It is Warren Buffett, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, most Democrat politicians, Black Lives Matter, many college professors, and most of the mainstream media who are talking about it. Let them define it. Also let them walk the talk. If they feel like they have an unfair share of income they should set an example and give their own wealth to those they feel deserve it, not demand the government take from others.
