    Buffet sets his own sallary. He pays himself about 100k per year to purposely keep his tax burden low. He essentially determines his own tax bracket through his ability to pay himself whatever he chooses. His business is in arbitration with the IRS for massive back taxes.

    Yet Obama wants to name tax policy after a publicly known tax dodger? Thats like naming a child rapist law after the pedophile.

    Someone really seems disconnected.

    Boiking is playing up to people who've never filled out anything more than 1040 EZ.

    Capitalism at it's finest, right? Working WITHIN our existing tax code, just as all of the other corporations that the GOP is trying to protect do...what's the problem?

    Nice rant.

    Now how does any of this change what he showed on his tax returns and how he is paying a lower % that his secretary?

    What do you expect from a guy who appoints people who "forget" to pay their taxes to his cabinet?

    Because you pay a lower rate when your salary is lower.

    Because you pay a lower rate on cap gains and dividends.

    Both Buffet and Boiking are telling massive lies of omission.

    He is paying himself less than he pays his secretary! Can you not see the fraud in your statement?
