Buffet is either senile or the biggest hypocrite I have ever seen. If he is so concerned about paying more taxes, he might want to pay his back taxes to the tune of about $10 million. Also, guess where some of Warren Buffet's companies fake headquarters are? The Cayman Islands.

He is a Democratic shill. Admittedly of the highest order, but a shill nonetheless. Berkshire Hathaway and GE have both benefited mightily by policy decisions of the Obama aministration.

Yes...I've lost all respect over the last couple years for this guy I used to admire.

If we raise taxes on the rich it won't help us. The federal government will just give the additional revenue to another country or a corporation. If we stopped giving away our money and used it for infrastructure then we would all be a lot better off right now.

Even though I don't support raising taxes on the wealthy, I do support raising taxes on people like Romney. If he wants to give away American dollars to foreign countries then they should come from his pockets, not ours. The same goes for every other politician and citizen that believes we should provide welfare to foreign countries or corporations.

One easy for Buffet to "fix" the problem of his tax without writing a check to the treasury is just pay himself more.

BRK at today's close worth 195.5 billion, which is one of the most valuable S&P company. The average salary before bonus is around $1 million dollar. How much is Buffet paying himself? 50k or 1/20 or 5% of the average salary of other S&P CEO.

If he want to pay more, all he has to do is pay himself $1 million.

Look look what this hypocrites did recent:
Buffett would profit from Keystone cancellation - Washington Times

Did you know he was pro TARP? Do you know he own GS, BAC and other entities that received more than 20% from TARP?
