    Buffet pays himself only 100 grand a year and lives in a modest suburban home. His wealth comes from capital gains. Does Obama's plan raise the capital gains tax?

    You know I think there's something really weird about someone who continually calls to raise taxes on other's--but is giving the Federal Government a 10 year hard time about paying a past due tax bill. Is it me that's weird or what?--:lol:

    The IRS doesn't think he failed. In fact they think he owes a shit ton of money and he seems to agree based on what he has said. Yet he won't pay?!?

    I dunno but it all seems very hypocritical and shady to me.

    It should, but not to the same level as the income tax rate.

    If he wants to get taxed then make this law go after him and him alone for one billion dollars. End of discussion.
