    So? And did you notice who was #2?

    Still with "the" trying to make being successful and rich a bad thing! Are you going to whine about them using tax loopholes as well?

    Here's Gates, just like Buffett whining about how he should pay more in taxes:

    Do you think he or Buffett wrote a check to the Treasury.

    They are just like politicians. Tell the public what they want to hear and do what's best for themselves.


    If you want to discuss Philanthropy, that's another isse. But don't bitch about how you should pay more in an interview then call your accountant to see how your investments are doing.

    you got to love the way you guys flip stuff around, tell me how exactly is it that the rich need yet another tax rate cut when they are clearly getting richer in good times and bad, when they talk about broadening the base what they are saying is that the poor pay too little and the rich are paying too much, but if that is true then why do the poor keep losing net worth while the rich keep piling on more?

    Show me where I said they need a tax cut? I said don't play martyr and say you should pay more in taxes. Put your money where your mouth is and pay more. Are their fingers broken? Out of checks? Treasury Dept closed. Accountant on vacation?

    You resent Gates doing well in bad, as well as good times....Don't buy Microsoft products. Let us know how that works out. You wouldn't be here drooling over the rich. You gloat when Buffett pals around with President Obama but resent him for doing well. His companies (Berkshire Hathaway) don't do well, guess what? He lays people off. Another fraud who pays only what he is required to.

    Get off the soapbox and get a dose of economic reality.


    It Turns Out Warren Buffett Is A Master Of Avoiding Taxes


    "Warren is fond of playing the role of the “folksy” type who still lives in his modest house in nowhere Omaha and owns an old car he’s had for years. Just plain folk, he’d have you believe. Well, DON’T believe it! This is the same Buffett who constantly travels by private jet; is chauffeured by limousines wherever he goes; regularly stays at 5-star hotels; invests in deals not available to any other investors. Yet, he’d have you believe he’s just like you. Sure!"

    You want to put your time to good use and perhaps educate us all. Trace them back and see what party the belong to? I don't know. That might be something worth discussing. I don't have the time or inclination. Then again I wasn't the one bitching about what they do or don't pay.

    Trying to deflect from the fact that your dingleberry candidates are still calling for more tax breaks for the rich, while at the same time calling for more taxes on the middle class. And bemoaning the fact that many of the working poor are not paying federal income tax.

    We should return to the tax schedule under Clinton. For all of us. And then add an additional 5% on the incomes over one million dollars.

    Obama is really helping the rich by regulating and taxing all the small business out of business. Tell Obama to give them their roads and bridges back.

    Lets see our projected deficit over the next 10 years 15 trillion. The tax you Democrats keep talking about on the rich is 1 trillion over 10 years. We are still 14 trillion short. There are 343,000 top 1 percenters. If they pay 1 dollar is it 343,000 dollars. If the middle class pays 1 dollar it is 200,000,000 dollars. Try and figure out what the quickest and cheapest way is to 14 trillion over 10 years.

    So the deficit needs to be solved in one swoop through one initiative? Oh it doesn't? So why did you create a strawman scenario which depicts that sort of scenario?
