Buffet puts his money where his mouth is.
Warren Buffett didn’t become the world’s richest man by being anything less than forthright. Last night he said it’s long past time to hike taxes on the super-rich, instantly discrediting anybody who claims that the wealthy are taxed more than the middle class:
Buffett offered $1 million to the audience member who could show that one of the nation’s wealthiest individuals pays a higher tax rate than one of their subordinates.
Ain’t no way he’s paying out on that bet.
