Reader comment on: Jacoby on Buffett
Submitted by NM OBJECTIVIST (United States), Aug 27, 2011 16:03
Mr. Jacoby says, "Buffett ... demands that his own [taxes] be raised."
I think that is not quite right. Buffett says he wants his taxes raised but he knows they won't be. Buffett is actually just pandering to Obama and others who think "the rich should pay more taxes". He knows taxes will not be raised on the rich and he knows he will pay exactly the amount of taxes he wants to pay. And he knows he will avoid taxes on most of his income and wealth no matter what. And that is fine with me. It's just so hypocritical.
