This guy is obviously a left-wing hippie.
... Last year my federal tax bill — the income tax I paid, as well as payroll taxes paid by me and on my behalf — was $6,938,744. That sounds like a lot of money. But what I paid was only 17.4 percent of my taxable income — and that’s actually a lower percentage than was paid by any of the other 20 people in our office. Their tax burdens ranged from 33 percent to 41 percent and averaged 36 percent.
If you make money with money, as some of my super-rich friends do, your percentage may be a bit lower than mine. But if you earn money from a job, your percentage will surely exceed mine — most likely by a lot. ...
Mr. Buffett should be ashamed of himself. He's one of the job creators, and as such should be taxed ... as little as possible.
Because everyone knows that low tax rates mean high growth rates. Except for all those years when they don't.
