Anyone who knows me understands that I cannot stand hypocrites. After I read this story my blood was boiling. Buffett has been in the news a lot over the last several years pushing his "Buffett Rule". Meanwhile, he has cleverly structured his tax situation to avoid paying taxes. The money quote from this article is "Buffett is virtually immune to higher individual income-tax rates, while he promotes higher rates for other rich people, who may have a net worth a hundredth of 1% (0.01%) of his own." Remember; don't ever take anything at face value.
