Just don't ask Billionaire Buffett to pay more taxes!
Fiberal hypocrisy is always fun to see when it involves money, because fibs are always the ones who want to tell everybody else to pay more taxes. A recent example is Warren Buffett, CEO/president of Berkshire Hathaway. Billionaire Buffett is a notorios tax and spend liberal supporting Hillary Clinton’s brand of commie-con semi-socialism and funding a variety of liberal support groups.
In a letter to his Berkshire shareholders courtesy of NEWMAX.com, he wrote "Writing checks to the IRS that include strings of zeros does not bother (me). Overall, we feel extraordinarily lucky to have been dealt a hand in life that enables us to write large checks to the government."
You would think that with that being the case, and he being the second richest man in the world, he wouldn’t worry about the IRS taking a few extra million from him. But low and behold, the man, who thinks we should all pay more taxes, sued the IRS for demanding he pay a measly $23.1million dollars of his money. Berkshire earned a profit this past year of 2.81 billion dollar and the $23.1 represents about 8/100's of one per of that profit of just last year. And that doesn’t count the whole company value in the multiple billions... or the profits since the case started back in 1990. To Billionaire Buffett it’s mere pocket change.
Berkshire won the case and the IRS (read: the American People) has to repay the 23 million plus we taxpayers now get to pay interest on 23 million for more than ten years to the Billionaire Buffett who says you and I should be paying higher taxes. Why did he bother demanding the money back if he thinks paying higher taxes is so great.....HYPOCRISY....from the left. Like the rest of the left, Buffett only wants everybody else to pay more taxes, he doesn’t mean himself.
