The PresidentEmperor Supreme Chancellor is out pushing hard for the "buffet" rule. As I've said before his argument is dishonest. He is comparing two different taxes (income and capital gains) as the same thing using old class warfare arguments. If he wants an increase in capital gains he should just ask for it.
But let us just say that the Supreme Chancellor gets his way, then what? When you speak in numbers this big a visual reference helps.
The only thing Obama accomplishes with this is stirring up the base by using typical us against them rhetoric.
I for one am offended that Obama continues to use Buffet as an example but fails to mention the billion + in back taxes Obama's "friend" owes.
