Tell your friends about these videos, let’s get the word out about how damaging this law is for America!
Let’s set one thing to rest. Buffett comparing his secretary’s income tax rate to his own capital gains tax rate is like me comparing your sales taxes to my property taxes. So let’s stop that nonsense right now.
The proponents of the “Buffett Rule” project it will bring in additional government revenues of $4.7 billion per year. If they’re right (which they aren’t) so what? It won’t pay for squat! Let’s assume the average interest rate on the national debt is a simple 3%. That’s $450 billion per year in interest, or $1.23 billion per day! So, the “Buffett Rule” would pay just over three days of interest per year. Then what?
So, let’s say you’ve saved some money and now you’re looking to invest it. (Oh, if you’re one of those people who don’t try to save money but instead continually use it to try to pay down those credit cards you shouldn’t have had in the first place, read no further. You won’t get the rest anyway.) What do you look for in an investment? How much you’ll make off of it. But what if the government wants to take half of that away from you, what do you do then? Find a different investment where you can make more. Or…invest in a country where the taxes are lower or none at all! When the capital gains tax rate goes up, dollars are going to move…probably off-shore. The result? ZERO federal tax revenue from those investments.
Wake up folks. This isn’t economic reform in any fashion. It’s class warfare and a distraction from our real economic woes – runaway government spending!
But it appears that our president is strictly adhering to the Buffett Rule – constant vacations punctuated by public appearances, kickin’ back at the beach…Oops! Sorry. That’s the Jimmy Buffett Rule.

This week it’s GSA’s party in Las Vegas and the Secret Service with prostitutes. So what’s new? Last year, it was SEC managers spending their workdays surfing porn. Remember the Social Security Administration retreat at the posh Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix (the very place that AIG was so roundly criticized for using to hold their sales manager’s awards program). And how about those Department of the Interior regulators drug parties with the people they were charged with regulating?
This is “business as usual” and typical of a government with total disdain as to how they handle our money. And whose spending is out of control at every level. For example, GSA’s budget doubled between 2009 and 2011. How did this happen when Congress hasn’t even passed a budget in that time?
If we don’t get control of government spending and borrowing, what happened to Greece will look like a walk in the park compared to what will happen to us. And who’s going to bail us out? It won’t be the EU! China? Russia? Think about it.
