Warren Buffett passes the buck (or a billion)

So one of the richest guys in the world complains that he doesn’t pay enough taxs.,,2202020,00.html

I’m not debating the issue of whether the rich get better treatment under the tax laws than the poor or middle class do, I just think he full of crap and is making comments in the press for some political reason.

If he thinks he isn’t paying enough, just don’t fill out your tax form to squeeze every deduction.  If he honestly feels that one or more deduction is unfair to the poor, or an advantage to the rich, don’t take it.  Put your money where your mouth is.

Falling back on the old saw that he’s “only following the rules” is a bunch of crap.  Deductions are “allowed”, not “required”.

I’m sure Mr. Buffett didn’t get where he is by following everyrule and law to the letter.
