Why Buffett’s Plan To Tax the Rich
Won’t Fix the Debt
Aug-16-2011--Buffett, chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, and one of the richest individuals on the planet.
Buffett is said to be worth about $47 billion, virtually all of it already beyond the reach of the tax man.
In the op-ed, Buffett calls for higher taxes from the rich, to ostensibly bridge the massive U.S. debt gap, which stands at $14.3 trillion this month. But that’s one bridge that could stand too far –
Buffet proposes a tax reform plan to tackle that problem.
Specifically, he would:
-Keep income taxes unchanged for 99.7% of taxpayers, i.e., everyone but the super-rich.
-Keep the current 2% reduction in the employee payroll tax.
-Raise tax rates for individuals with more than $1 million in annual income
-Raise taxes for the uber-wealthy –
those making more than $10 million per year
