I seem to remember that Warren Buffet has recently been going around the country telling us all how Obumer needs to tax rich guys like him MORE not less. Here's Buffet in his own words in the NY Times. You can read it if you want. Basically he thinks rich people should give the government more of their money. Its a stupid opinion but its his and he's entitled to it. Just like a crack whore is entitled to think that getting aids is a good thing because she doesn't have to worry about making guys put on a condom anymore.
The Obummer cartel took ole WB at his word and the IRS taxed Net Jet for flying rich people around in private jets. Did the Sage of Omaha rejoice in getting his taxes raised, like he's been preaching? After all who's better able to pay the taxes, rich guys in private jets or guys like me? Nothing says excess wealth like having a pilot fly you around the country the way some people take a cab. Is WB praising the IRS for doing exactly what he wanted, i.e. taxing the rich?
HECK NO! Warren Buffet is suing the IRS over paying a lousy $642 million of his fair share.
The ticket tax WB is pissed about is an indirect tax on people who have the money to fly PRIVATE JETS, because it would be so droll to fly first class commercial to the 10,000 foot weekend cottage in Aspen. Hey Warren, I'm in favor of the government cutting spending, paying off the debt, canceling the welfare state and CUTTING everybody's taxes. BUT COMMON all ready you can't bitch about taxes being to low and then cry about a tax on people rich enough to take the Lear; when thanks to your buddies handling of the country, most of us can no longer afford to take our car for a weekend trip to see grandma.
