Pat Buchanan Challenges Warren Buffett: 'Set an Example and Send a Check for $5 Billion to the Federal Government'
"'You know, you had a plan up there, I talked to Howie Carr at Boston where the super-rich could contribute an extra amount. It was something like one-tenth of one percent did it. You get all this noise from these big rich folks. Let them send checks and set an example instead of writing op-eds.'"
"Why doesn't every outlet that likes this idea follow Buchanan's lead and challenge Buffett to put his money where his mouth is and send the federal government a nice fat check?"
God bless Pat Buchanan! Too bad he and George W are the only politicians with enough balls to publicly go out and tell Buffet to put up or shut up.
Thank you. This was infinitely helpful arguing the point Xanga
