Nothing like a rich old bastard giving lectures to lower-income taxpayers.
Taxpayer anger against President Barack Obama and Congress is counterproductive because policy makers took measures including deficit spending to stimulate the economy, billionaire investor Warren Buffett told CNBC.
“Sentiment has turned very sour in the last three or four or five months,” the chairman and CEO of Omaha-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc. said in an interview broadcast Thursday.
“I hope we get over it pretty soon, because it’s not productive,’’ Buffett said. “We will come back regardless of how people feel about Washington, but it is not helpful to have people as unhappy as they are about what’s going on in Washington.”
Ya know what’s counter-productive, Warren? A socialist-in-chief with an ax to grind against successful business entrepreneurs, and free market capitalism. Not only that, but he’s also going to raise taxes on everyone, including the middle class; those who make $250,000 or less.
I have an idea, let’s seize all of your assets and “spread the wealth” to unions, special interests, and government takeovers. You can spring for the next round of Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac/Tarp bailouts.
When ObamaCare takes full effect in 2014 (barring repeal), how ’bout you footing the bill for the extra load of 47 million people on government-controlled health care, instead of the taxpayers.
And give generously.
