    Warren Buffet: cap gain 30%, 50% tax on the rich

    It isn't changing anything for the government either. Obama could nationalize the entire wealth of the American billionaires and it wouldn't last this government more than a week. The problem is the overspending, inadequate, and uninformed spending practices, rules, and philosophies of Congress.

    They have no financial logic or education and there is no accountability for their failures and blatant corruption.

      Don't confuse yourself with Congress.

      • Really, then please oh wise one, enlighten us with your tales of sound financial judgments on the part of our Congress in the past 40-50 years. Where have they actually acted like sound stewards of OUR money and have spent it wisely, protected it from obvious corruption and performed any legitimate actions to correct such corruption when found.

      • Oh don't fret yourself about my confusion. I am not confused about Congress; they are the group that is confused. They for some unknown reason that defies all logic think they are the only ones that can fix our fiscal problems, not being intelligent enough to realize they are the cause of the problems. Poor decision-making, lack of oversight of their past decisions and complete ignorance of what their constituents are asking them to do. They spend so much time on vacation I am shocked they found the time to screw things up so royally! I guess they have more talent that we realize; unfortunately it is a talent that will lead to the destruction of our economy for good.

        I in fact have had to develop budgets and to actually track performance to those budgets and correct any deficiencies in expected performance. My future income, position, promotions and continued employment depended on meeting those expectations. Unlike Congress who simply expects to be treated like royalty with no expectations or accountability for their performance.

    • without the Bush tax cuts, if this one is continued another 10 years, it's 2 trilion dollars in tax breaks to the wealthy who already pay a low rate.

      Sentiment: Buy

      • The past is over and we are moving forward.

        But you keep referring to the past and to things Bush did or didn't do, how is that moving forward?

        Does that statement mean no more Bush slamming posts? I don't really care, because you're right on the money, the past is the past and the future with this President and the proven idiots in the Democratic Congress scare the BeJesus out of me.
