    Well TM...he didn't pay LESS than his secretary, he paid a lower rate.

    Which is still fucked up.

    This is an opinion piece..that is rebuffed almost immediately by the paper's fellow writers.

    Perhaps Buffet should pay his Sec the same way he's payed.

    Then she can pay the same capital gains rate that he pays.

    Did you know if you raise the capital gains tax more people will NOT invest which means Wall street will tank . I sure would like more investors paying 15% then less paying 30% because alot more will not invest because why would someone in the 1% who pay on INCOME TAX, not CAPITAL gains pay 30% on both.. Crazy
