Warren Buffett on taxing the rich

That’s one of Buffet’s points.

It made the New York Times Business section yesterday and today there were seven published letters in response to the Op-Ed. Not bad for an Op-Ed.

I wonder if the folks yammering have given anything close to the percentage of their accumulated wealth to charity that Mr. Buffet has. This is the guy who made the largest charitable donation it in the entire history of the human race, and did in the way he figured would end up putting the highest percentage of that money through the infrastructure of charity to the desired recipients.

On the day He and the Mr. and Mrs Gates decided to increase the amount of money being used to treat and research AIDS, and AIDS victims, the world budget for that increased by a factor of ten. They did more in a day than all the governments in the world did since the disease was identified.
