    The Buffett Rule:
    Never eat at the buffett. You don't know how long the food has been sitting there.

    $3 billion per year isn't even enough to pay the interest on the federal debt. And of course the CBO's projections are always off anyway, so it probably won't even be close to that much money.

    Since the Buffet Rule is only meant to be punitive, I suppose how little revenue it actually raises is irrelevant, though.

    I especially like the part where Obama wants to replace the Alternative Minimum Tax with the Buffett rule, thereby LOSING billions of tax dollars.

    I guess they didn't do much math at Harvard.
