Is there a bigger piece of hokum--except for maybe global warming--than the current fake Obama push for the "Buffett Rule," that piece of demagoguery that will solve nothing except give the government maybe $4-5 billion/year so that it can spend an extra $30-$40 billion? Remember, if you give the government a dollar it will spend five or six on new "programs."
Spending must be cut, not taxes raised. The people's money belongs to the people not to government programs.
Whenever I hear Obama and his friends talk about the Buffett Rule, I think they have misspelled the word. I am sure they mean the Buffet Rule. They, after all, view government as an endless smorgasbord; there is no limit to what government can and should offer. You want free contraception? Sure. You want free health care? Of course. You want to bail out the UAW? Coming right up. You want to stop global warming? Yep, yes we can. And on and on and on . . . .
The Buffet Rule, now there's a slogan . . .
