What Is Buffet's Problem?

Warren Buffet, who at least before his massive donation was considered the world's second richest man, complains that he pays too little in taxes. He says that he and other rich Americans "must do more to help the less fortunate". Well, since I am comparatively a lot less fortunate I'd be more than happy to take a billion dollars or so off his hands! He can contact me any time he wants to make the arrangement.

And if he specifically wants to give more money to the government, he can easily give away his money to the U.S. government here to the Treasury Department's gift section.

There is thus no reason at all for Buffet to complain that he has too much money as there are more enough private individuals as well as the government who would be willing to accept his money. Could it really be that someone who is such a successful entrepreneur is really that clueless? More likely he is a hypocrite.

Don't forget to mention my name, when Warren Buffet contacts you about that donation! ;-)
