The Buffett Rule is Nonsense

The Buffett Rule is nonsense. It raises between $47 billion to $160 billion dollars over ten years. If the Buffett Rule were an iceberg and the deficit the Titanic, the Titanic would win. In addition, it would not impact the uber rich (like Mitt Romney) since this tax goes after wage earners versus people making money from capital gains, private equity, etc. The President needs to stop wasting the public’s time with this reverse fake.
