    No Buffett Rule for OBY who paid less taxes than me



    After lobbying Congress for months to pass the Buffett Rule, ie, higher
    taxes for the rich, OBY cheated on his own system by claiming charitable contributions
    to reduce his tax rates.

    Warren Buffett said OBY doesn't qualify for the Buffett Rule this year.
    One has to earn $1M to qualify for it. OBY came just under that
    amount at $789,000 plus change. That's because he claimed 25% of his
    income to charities so this brought it under $1M. Buffett probably influenced him on
    that following another Buffett Rule - give your money away.

    As a result of giving that money away, OBY ended up paying less taxes than his secretary and his VP, Joe Biden who paid 23% to taxes and less than me who paid close to 34% on a fixed income.

    There will always be loop holes no matter what these DEMs propose as for
    raising taxes.

    BTW, OBY made over $5M in 2009 and $1M in 2010 before the Buffett
    Rule talk and even if the Buffett Rule is passed, millionaires need not worry cause
    there's still plenty of loop holes for them to hide their millions.

    So it's business as usual. The tax codes will protect the very rich and the very poor
    while those of us in between will pay for everything. The Tax Code definitely needs to
    be fixed but this BR does not fix it. I understand OBY pimping it. He has a campaign to
    run and has nothing to run on. He has no record. The Buffett Rule is perhaps his last
    chance at something.

    There's a lot of hypocrisy to these liberals like Buffett who says he should pay more
    taxes but the bill containing his name still has loop holes for him to hide in.
    He gave Goldman Sachs his own buyout when the market crashed in 2008 by buying
    10% of the company. However, after Sachs got its money back after TARP was issued
    they got the SEC to approve their buyout Buffett's shares back.

    He made $1.4M PR DAY.

    Buffett said if it took US armed forces 10 years to find Osama Ben Laden, it will take Goldman
    Sachs longer to find me. He finally sent his investors a letter saying the gravey train just
    stopped in ref to that $1.4M pr day. He bought one of the country's largest furniture
    companies from a little old lady for $55M. It was worth $100M. She said he charmed her
    into it.

    And more hyprocisy. Buffett was the one who influenced OBY in not signing the Keystone
    Pipeline bill. The only other alternative to get Canada's oil down to Texas is to ship it by
    rail. Buffett owns the rail road that would ship it. A pipe would cost just a fraction of
    shipping by rail plus a pipe would create about 20,000 jobs but Buffett used his
    influence to stop it. He would have made billions more. And you thought it was the
    environmentalists OBY caved in to. Brutal, just brutal.

    His number 1 rule was never get into debt and he never did. When his daughter Susy asked
    for a $30,000 loan to enlarge her kitchen he declined. His son Peter said the children get
    none of the money from his will and why should we he says. Buffett says it isn't fair.
    The bulk goes to Bill Gates foundation to feed 3rd world countries.

    A great book to read is MAKING OF A CAPITALIST BY LOWENSTEIN.

    DO YOU THINK MILLIONAIRES SHOULD PAY MORE TAXES OR BUS DRIVERS?

    Re: No Buffett Rule for OBY who paid less taxes than me

    And on one more personal note, does anyone remember Hoschild Kohn Dept store in Bmore
    back in the 50s and 60s? I got my first job as a kid working there in the shoe dept as a stock
    boy. Worked all thru high school there. It was a great job for a teen and between that and
    cutting lawns I had more money than any of my friends and bought a car in high school.

    Well, that store was one of Buffett's earliest acquisitions in the 60s. After he bought it he
    disbanded it and passed the assets to his partners. I was in college working down the
    point by then but I would have lost a job, as everyone still working there did, if he bought it just two years before.

    Brutal, just brutal and SCREW HIM!

    Funny how you will make this admission and then go vote for Romney who made millions cutting up companies and firing employees in the "spirit" of capitalism so that he could buy more houses and elevators for his cars. Looks like you might need to do some soul searching.

    You missed all the times I said I might not vote for him. I'm not voting for someone unless I
    believe in him and Romney has lied so much I don't believe a damn thing he says but Anybody
    will be better than OBY who will finish destroying the country with a second term.

    You don't have much room to discuss unemployment Galen with OBY refusing the
    Keystone Pipeline and thus denying jobs for 20,000 Americans and he even said we need
    this TARP buyout to keep unemployment from reaching 9%. It went to 10% after TARP.

    Also, throw in the 5 big coal plants that shut down (there's a least 106 on his hit list) with all those workers because of OBYs
    pleadged destruction of the coal industry and it gets even worse with many more to come
    as he continues to destroy the coal industry.


    Pot meet kettle.
