Mr. Buffett could pay as much in taxes as he wants to; the IRS accepts extra cash (he should write me if he needs the address).
And he's giving lots and lots to charity, completely avoiding taxes on those amounts.
The OWSers don't mind people being rich, it's only people who have EARNED their money. All of the Kennedys (inherited wealth), John Kerry (married wealth), Hollywood elites (repeat lines others have written for them)--they're all okay. Mitt Romney (earned his wealth) is evil and greedy.
So much for you can never be too rich or too thin. Thin, maybe (not many thinner than Obama); rich, anything you don't absolutely need is TOO rich.
