Poor Billionaire Warren Buffett. He has never had things so good and he just feels so gosh darn awful about it. As quoted by ABC News he says:
But I think that people at the high end — people like myself — should be paying a lot more in taxes. We have it better than we’ve ever had it.
You see. Now my heart goes out. Moral dilemma, here folks. Should I mention this our not? As surely, Mr. Buffett’s tax attorneys and advisers are surely going to be fired once Mr. Buffett learns that it is as easy as a postage stamp, an envelope and a check to donate more taxes to the US Treasury. Oh boy, what to do? I’m sorry fellas, I can’t keep this link to myself:
Citizens who wish to make a general donation to the U.S. government may send contributions to a specific account called “Gifts to the United States.” This account was established in 1843 to accept gifts, such as bequests, from individuals wishing to express their patriotism to the United States. Money deposited into this account is for general use by the federal government and can be available for budget needs. These contributions are considered an unconditional gift to the government. Financial gifts can be made by check or money order payable to the United States Treasury and mailed to the address below.
U.S. Department of the Treasury
Credit Accounting Branch

Hyattsville, MD 20782
There is no limit on donations. So Mr. Buffett can voluntarily expunge as much of his own wealth as he wants! And he doesn’t have to wait for Congress not to act!
And I hear the voices. I hear voices of people claiming that Mr. Buffett is being disingenuous, and transparently so. But if Mr. Buffett were really be disingenuous, would I really pull this quote out of context? Fine, I will, only to prove those voices wrong.
…[The Tax Code is a] product of an unholy combine between  statist intellectuals with visions of state-sponsored utopias,  envious demagogues and the desire by  established, wealthy interests to prevent any competition to their place and to offload business costs to an expanding regulatory welfare state.
You see, there is no evidence that Mr. Buffett is either a  statist intellectual, or,  an envious demagogue. So there.
