Fact check: The wealthy already pay more taxes – USATODAY.com.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Associated Press has disputed Obama’s claim that the “rich” are paying less in taxes than they should be.

Am I “rich”? No, far, far from it. But as the saying goes, I have never worked for a poor person. I want the rich pay to keep as much of their own money as possible

It really irks me when someone such Warren Buffett goes out of his way to insist that taxes should be raised and the debt ceiling should be raised, but does not call for reducing government spending, which is totally out of control imo. Mr. Buffett seems to think that the vast sum of money the federal government spends is all spent wisely and that we should all support whatever tax increases he advocates without much of an explanation as to why, other than the fact that he is a BILLIONAIRE.
