Nope, can't do this one. Buffett should know that if you make a deal, you stick to it (or maybe he doesn't). But the reasoning is terrible.

The government can make contracts and should keep them.
All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 06/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.
