Warren Buffet, not putting his money where his mouth is
Super-rich Warren Buffet wrote an op-ed over the weekend in which he whined that the super-rich like him should be taxed far more than they currently are. Pat Buchanan on MSNBC's Morning Joe challenged Buffet asking, [paraphrased]"If you think the rich should be paying more in taxes, why don't you go ahead and scratch a $5Billion check to the government and set an example"?
Buffet could easily afford to fork over another $5Billion. He'd never miss it. No word so far on his response....heh heh.
