Forgot to add that when Mitch McConnell, the top Senate Republican, said if Buffet wanted to give more money to the government he could write a check and send it in, Buffett challenged back by offering to match all Republican Congressional contributions to the government and to match McConnell's three to one!
He says he's not worrying about having to write any checks in this challenge. So far, of course, he's quite right. And here's another great quote from Buffet:
"I find the argument that we need lower taxes to create more jobs mystifying, because we've had the lowest taxes in this decade and about the worst job creation ever."
