OK - I get it now. Wondered why you were all up in WB after he'd been mentioned last night.

Obama proposed a Buffett Rule in 2011. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffett_Rule. He's beat the drum on it for awhile.


My understanding of Buffett Rule (albeit limited understanding, I don't follow proposed tax rules much until they actually or least have a chance of becoming law) it would tax high earners at a higher rate, regardless whether it's wages or investment/capital gains income (currently taxed much lower rates - hence Mitt Romney and Buffett etc low effective tax rates).

FWIW, with all those loser heavily-financed business losses, I doubt Trump would be paying federal income tax under a Buffett rule either.

My outrage is kind of random. That's what makes my life so much fun. I never know when I'll go off on something.
