Why didn't Warren Buffett just pay his secretaries taxes for her?

Speaking of greed............

Warren Buffett could have done 2 things:

1- Just give his secretary a check for her owed taxes. Then she doesn't suffer from paying them. Was he too greedy to do that? He's a billionaire. Why is his personal secretary having to struggle to pay that?

2- He's a billionaire. Can't he afford to pay his secretary $1,000,000 a year, thus making her rich, and THUS allowing her to begin "not paying her fair share" as a rich person?

Buffett's secretary "pays a higher rate" than him ONLY because either he didn't pay hers for her (greedy) or because he refused to pay her $1,000,000 a year to make her rich and thus allow her to skip out on her fair share.

Greedy asshole.
