Warren Buffett, who is the second richest man in the world, met with Senate Democrats yesterday, and told them that the rich are not paying enough taxes.
One of those Democrats, Claire McCaskill (D-MO) put it this way:
It was interesting to see someone who is such an aggressive capitalist, who believes so much in our capitalist system, saying we’ve got the scales way too heavily toward people who are very, very wealthy.
I think Warren Buffett is a hero. He is someone who worked hard and succeeded, and now wants to give back to the country that made it possible for him to become rich. That is someone who truly loves his country.
