And the imbecile who wrote the article doesn't even know if the secretary has kids

Name a "rule" after one of the single-richest men on the planet
See that he has a $62 Million income
Set the threshold for his namesake rule at $1 Million (1.6% of his income)

The "Buffet Rule" is proposed to kick in above $1 Million. Mr. Obama's income is less than $1 Million. Therefore, if the Buffet Rule is enacted into law, it will have no effect on the President's required tax payments - no matter how many times he lies to you in a speech. (Gee, once again the President tells you one thing, while actually doing another... )
"No household making more than $1 million each year should pay a smaller share of their income in taxes than a middle class family pays. This is the Buffett Rule—a simple principle of tax fairness that asks everyone to pay their fair share."
Meanwhile, it's pretty funny that you continue pretending "the rich" don't already pay far more taxes, at a higher rate, than every other income group in the country. So much for claims of desiring fairness, when you really just want those who pay the most... to pay even more.
Mr. Buffet has two options to prove he's sincere in his tax-rate guilt:
- Increase his secretary's pay to compensate
- Voluntarily send a check to the US Treasury for the amount he believes he should be paying in taxes
The hypocrite has done neither.
Mr. Obama can't use the first option in government, so he's only left with the second option. Will he?

Back on original topic - Do you really think that Obama's relatively low effective tax rate has nothing to do with him donating 22% of his income to charity in 2011? Last I checked, charity is deductible. And the author of the article fails to take into consideration any potential deductions Obama's secretary may have.

An administration that doesn't trot out the tired old cliches of greed, envy, and class warfare, by pretending those who already pay far more than everyone else somehow aren't paying enough... while nearly half the country pays nothing at all.
Hey, how about Mr. Obama actually implements one of his many campaign statements that never actually made it into policy: "Everybody is going to have to give. Everybody is going to have to have some skin in the game."
Disclaimer for those who can't keep up: The specific and sole topic is Federal Income Taxes

You look to be about 5 foot 2 and a buck ten and clearly not a lifter from your picture.
All you do is make threads on "kiddy porn" "Ron Paul meme's" and defend everything Obama does.
Please find another website to sputter your anti god/USA hate on and not on a bodybuilding website,

Are you suggesting we discourage investment?
Are you aware that when we discourage investment, we increase personal spending?
Would you rather Mitt Romney buys a fleet of yachts than invests in many growing companies?

What a surprise a bald asian to loves obama and seeing the US fail thinks the US Constitution is "tired and old" and needs to be thrown out and US be ran by a Dictator.
You have a lot of balls to just throw out something millions and millions of our (not you) fore-fathers have fought for to be thrown out by some ignorant wannabe Dictator.
