    If Warren Buffet thinks his secretary should pay a lower percentage than he does, he needs to teach her how to invest for long term capital gain, rather than lobby for a higher tax rate for the wealthy. I would never encourage anyone to pay taxes like an employe, but instead I would encourage everyone to study the tax laws, start a small business and spend more time arranging their affairs so they too, can understand the regulations that allow for smarter ways to pay taxes like Warren Buffet and Mitt Romney do. Interested parties ought to read what Judge Learned Hand had to say about paying taxes.

    More economic disaster if they follow this path. Have business and the rich corporation do profit sharing with its workers who can turn their wages into 7 times the power in economic growth than letting Obama waste it on a junkets for his daughters.
