The United States' second-richest man has delivered a blunt message to the Bush administration: he wants to pay more tax.
Here's my idea: Mr. Buffet, pay my taxes.
Two things would be accomplished: My tax burden would be lifted and I could help grow the economy through spending and investment; and his conscience could be salved.
After all, he probably makes more in fifteen minutes than I make in a year.
Maybe he could pay your taxes as well. (Just get in line behind me.)
Seriously, (or practically, since I am totally serious about him paying my taxes but I don't think he will), if you want to pay more to the government, then write a check and send it in. Don't ask for more laws to do what you think you should do anyway. Just do it.
