DailyDirt: Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Money can’t buy happiness, but if you have enough of it, you can get all kinds of publicity (whether or not you want it). Here are just a few folks that have been named on the various “these people are rich” lists.

By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

On the Buffett thing...

I’ve always kinda wondered about this, so the article was enlightening. However, to me the important caveat is the final paragraph of the analysis:

So when it comes to Buffett’s statement, there are two categories: the rich and the really rich. And the evidence tends to point to the conclusion that the really rich pay less in taxes as a percentage of income then their merely well-to-do counterparts — if their income comes primarily from investments. Overall, we rate Buffett’s statement True.

Which means he’s still paying a higher percentage than me.

PolitiFact is Anything BUT Non-Partisan!

“Politifact?s fact is nothing more than their left-wing hypothesis disconnected from and ignoring every data point that doesn?t help them make their case.”
