Why do Cons hate Warren Buffett so much?
Is it because he's liberal, and Democrat?
Is it because he's one of the few super-rich who has kept his humanity and humility?
Is it because he publicly acknowledges that besides his hard work, LUCK was a HUGE factor in his success (and by implication, in ALL success)?
Is it because he publicly said it's unfair, and wrong that ordinary, hard-working Americans like his secretary pay a much higher tax rate on their middle-class incomes than he does on his multi-million dollar income?
Is it because he said "“There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.” and that "it's pretty unfair since his side, the ultra rich, has the “nuclear bomb."?
Is it because he exposes Con lies such as "a low capital gains tax is necessary to encourage investment"? (Buffett has been investing people's money for more than 50 years, and when he started out, capital gains were taxed at the same rate as earned income, and top marginal tax rates were MUCH higher - he said he never knew rich people to want to NOT invest their money because the capital gains tax was too high - no matter what the tax, people always want to invest their money.)
Are any of these good reasons to hate the guy? Or are they good reasons to love him?
