Warren Buffet is a smart guy, but he's not Jesus or anything.
Omaha, NE-- A chain letter is making the rounds on-line saying the Warren Buffett has a quick fix for the economy. The post takes aim at Congress: their pay, their pension and their perks. While Buffett admits that he did say a part of the post he says it was taken out of context. The post supposedly began from New Hampshire. It's has been shared nearly 150-thousand times. Now, the Oracle of Omaha is setting the record straight. An online posting is generating hype nationwide and here in Omaha on just how Warren Buffett proposes to fix the economy. The first line of the post reads, "Warren Buffett, "I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC." Corie Mustoe says, "I think he's a brilliant man, but I don't know if he could end it in five minutes. I guess I'd be up to hearing more of what he wanted to say about it."
he explains, "I just gave an off hand remark on CNBC to illustrate a point on incentives. and somebody has picked this up and is using my name and it has no validity whatsoever."

Get this passed and then look at getting rid of the debt with young politicians that are FOR the people. This should happen for Every government job! 8 years for everyone! Then you get back to real people trying to make a difference. Rather than greedy scum bags who are only looking out for themselves and their corporate masters!
