In today’s NYTimes, financial titan Warren Buffet has some words for the Congressional super-committee as they look for ways to get the nation’s financial house in order. For a start, raise taxes on those people most able to afford to contribute more to the federal pot. He points to the example of the military men and women who have sacrificed to serve in Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of them are from families without a lot of money. The volunteers in the military are doing their share for America. His reasoning makes the national Republican Party’s fanatical opposition to raising taxes on the super-rich look mean-spirited. Stop protecting us, he advises Congress. It’s time for us to help.
