Wealthy who avoided the ‘fiscal cliff.’ So much for Warren Buffet and his buddies paying their fair share of taxes. Obama’s campaign slogan should have been “Rich people, you’re in good hands with Obama.”

Wealthy Progressives believe their own fair share of taxes is zero, because they contribute to society in other ways, like telling the rest of us how to behave and what to think.

Buffett is a fake when it comes to paying taxes. It’s time to go to a national sales tax and just do away with the income tax altogether. Then everyone gets to pay their share when they purchase items. That includes, homes, yachts, planes, cars, suits, shoes, jewelry and anything else that all of these so called progressive purchase to hide their incomes.

Leona Helmsley use to think taxes where for the little people. She then got to find out what happens when you don’t pay your fair share.

There should be a special hypocrite tax rate. Start taxing their accumulated wealth and serve ‘em a large cup of STFU.

FTA:
Some of the wealthiest Americans – such as private equity managers, hedge fund managers and venture capitalists – will continue to enjoy the provisions of a legal, but controversial, part of the tax code that allows them to avoid pay billions in taxes.

Part of the reason this provision wasn’t changed, analysts say, is the financial power of this sector. In the Bay Area alone, employees of top money firms donated $6.7 million to federal candidates and political committees during the 2012 election cycle.

Welcome to Obamanomics for the rich. Donate enough to his campaign and you too can avoid taxes! Talk about governmental greed!

Here is something about crooked gov’t types & the money interests that buy them out. This is Motorhead, & they play rock & roll. This is “Jus’Cos You Got The Power”…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXtSbBvXTx0

You might be a financial wizard, with a sack of loot
But all I see is a slimy lizard, with an expensive suit
Go on and run your corporation, go on and kiss some ass,
You can buy up half the nation, but you can’t buy class,
You bastards think it’s funny, living and stealing all you life,
Think all there is, is money, got your future wrapped up tight
Just ‘Cos You Got The Power, that don’t mean you got the right

You can take fingers, buddy, you can take my eyes,
You can take my past and future, it won’t make you wise,
You can have me thrown in jail, you can steal my booze,
You can even steal my mail, step on my blue suede shoes,
You bastards might be clever, got it mapped out in black and white,
But remember you can never, get a dog to stand upright,
Just ‘Cos You Got The Power, that don’t mean you got the right

Go on out and make another deal, feed your big fat face,
Go on out and cop the feel, get on somebody’s case,
You surely could be satisfied, if you could get it all
But time ain’t on your side, you’re going to the wall,
You think that life’s just dollars, won with greed and lust and spite
But I wasn’t born to follow, like to get me sleep at night,
Just ‘Cos You Got The Power, that don’t mean you got the right.

…sadley, I did’nt hear this when I say them in 2012.
