5 Ways Warren Buffett Can Take Personal Responsibility and Stop Relying on Government to Solve His Problems

Warren Buffett makes the erroneous claim that he pays less in taxes than does his secretary.  He claims that the government thus “coddles” the alg_warren_buffettrich.  He asks the government to increase his taxes, and the taxes of others like him, as if he is incapable of doing that on his own.

Buffett is half right.  He proves that government coddles people by asking the government to solve his problem of guilt.

To help Buffett learn to take care of himself, without government help. here are 3 ways he can assuage his guilt and built his self-esteem by solving the problem himself.

1.  Pay all you want to the U.S. Department of the Treasury. 

2.  Go Galt. Make less money. Give away what you have.

3.  Refuse all corporate welfare and tax breaks for all Berkshire-Hathaway companies, saving the treasury billions.

4.  Return the billions in corporate welfare that your companies have claimed over the past 5 years.

5. Pay your poor secretary more. Increase her salary until she’s in the same, privileged, low tax bracket you enjoy.

There.  Three simple ways that you, Warren Buffett, can solve your little guilt problem without asking the government to fix your problems for you

BTW, Mr. Buffett, please realize that giving the government 100% of your wealth and all future earnings will have almost no effect on the national debt.  But it will add your name to the dole.

Now, since we’re all capitalists around here, and because I’d like to get closer to your low tax bracket, where do I send my invoice for $250,000 for this advice?

  1. Better yet.  Andrew Carnegie spent a good amount of his fortune on the building of scores of public libraries.  If Warren wants to help the poor, he could do it much more cost-effectively through private charities.  He could even start some new ones of his own to help the poor.  Giving the money to the Fed Govt will require most of the money be spent on the massively expensive Fed Govt bureaicracy.  Not a very good use of one’s discretionary income to be used to help the poor.  But, libs think the only way to help the poor is through the Govt.  Govt dependency equals a kind of slavery?

  2. Buffet is a liberal and that’s why he agrees with their policies.  He erroneously thinks he is a financial genius, when most people attained wealth through luck, inheritance, unscupulousness, and many other less savory means.  No one gains power or wealth without wanting it more than anything else.  Why should I respect the opinions of this man?
