LOL.

CNBC: Does that you mean you disagree with the president's new jobs proposal which would be paid for by raising taxes on households with incomes over $250,000?
Buffett: There is another program that I won't be discussing. My program is to have on ultra rich people who are paying very low tax rates. Not just all the rich people. And it would probably apply to 50,000 people in a population of 300 million.

Yeah, who knew his own rule was just for billionaires like him and NOT those making $250K and over?

Another lie, misstatement and exaggeration from obama.

From the looks of Christie, he doesn't seem to like any buffet rules either.

in the interview you have Buffet, and he says he wants to raise taxes on certain millionaires who don't pay enough.

and the jackass interviewer says, "Well what about THIS tax plan, and what about THAT tax plan, do you support these OTHER tax plans?" (which have no relation to anything Buffet said.)

and Buffet has to hold his hand and explain, AGAIN, what he said the first time.

The media also went right past Buffett's statement that taxes for somebody with $50 million of earned income (he used athletes and TV stars as an example) would NOT go up.

Buffett's rule would make sure that those 50,000 people at the top did not pay a lower overall tax rate than others.

This also is in direct contradiction of the panderer and populist in chief, the classic divider Barack Obama.

Thanks! I was wondering what the discussion was about. Now I know it's about Warren Buffett.
