Please don't fall for this phony posturing by those like Gates and Buffett. One of these media types needs to have the balls to ask Gates and Buffett,
"How much did you pay to accountants and tax attorneys to ensure you are taking advantage of each and every conceivable tax break/deduction/loophole,
in order to keep your tax liability at the absolute minimum?"
I'd bet the farm it's considerably more than Buffett paid his secretary.
What was the amount of every local tax abatement they received from the cities and counties, in which they have facilities?
The other important question that is never
asked of those squawking about the "rich" paying their "fair share" is, "Exactly how much would you
say is a "fair share?" 50%? 75%? 90%?
What would be accomplished by taxing the "rich" at a 90% rate?
Not a damn thing, because those evil "top 1%ers" that the Dems are attempting to turn everyone against, aren't the problem or the solution. Stop
buying into the class warfare tactics.
The projected 2011 deficit is $1.6 trillion... The total of the AGI for the top 1% of taxpayers is $1.685 trillion...
So, if you stole every penny earned from the top 1%, you will have only paid the deficit
and still not have touched the $14.5 trillion debt.
It was announced that our debt has now surpassed our GDP. To pay off the debt would require stealing every penny earned from every man, woman and
child. And what would we call that?
