Click onto this link to access the Bloomberg article on Buffett's charity giving. Some time ago (and I have not found the reference again), USA Today did a survey of major charitable givers. Until Buffett gave his wife's $2.5 Billion Berkshire Hathaway stock to The Gates Foundation, he was a real piker...compared to less wealthy people. He has been utterly dishonest as he shills for Obama, but it is nothing new for him. The press just doesn't cover this aspect of Buffett.

Once again Warren Buffett makes a mockery of the tax issue by challenging Republican Senators to write checks for taxes and he'll match them. He's at best simply playing games. Duplicitous!!

When challenged on his tax avoidance in foundations established by each of his family members and The Gates Foundation, his comment was that he believed the foundations would use funds more effectively than the government. Yet it's OK for the government to take more money from people who are not wealthy as he is and use it inefficiently!! Dishonest!

Now the clincher: Buffett uses this excuse in spite of the fact that Bill Gates has admitted publicly, even in a Wall Street Journal Opinion piece, that his foundation's focus on education has failed. 
How many people know this? How many care..... including the press??
