wealth, taxes and hard work

“If you make money with money, you get taxed at very low rates. If you make money with muscle or hard work or sweat of your brow, you get taxed at rates that move on up…In a very high percentage of cases, the very rich are paying less in the way of taxes than the people that clean their offices.”

-Warren Buffet

Remember, corporations are ‘people’ too. Wealthy ones.

Another quote on class. It struck me as something I knew, but never quite realized.

I am not opposed to wealth, or the wealthy. I am interested as to how the wealth was acquired and how it is maintained. Not for my personal, self-help, benefit, but in terms of fair practices. That people did not get fiscally stomped on to achieve the goals.
