Obama has named the new tax proposal after billionaire Warren Buffett, who supports taxing the rich.
Οι δικοί μας εκατομμυριούχοι άφαντοι. Που είναι οι κροίσοι μας; Έχω αναφερθεί σ' αυτούς και στην τόσο αμέτοχη στάση τους για τα κοινά. Για την τόσο αδιάφορη και προκλητική αφασία.... Δεν έχει ακουστεί ούτε μία πρόταση βοήθειας για την πατρίδα μας από χείλη πλούσιων Ελλήνων, εντός συνόρων αλλά και εκτός.
Άλλης φιλοσοφίας οι δικοί μας.
Από την μύγα σπλήνα......
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The White House will propose a new tax rate for people earning more than $1 million a year to ensure that they pay at least the same percentage of their earnings in taxes as middle-income Americans, administration and White House officials told CNN on Sunday.
Called the Buffett Rule, the proposal will be part of a comprehensive deficit reduction plan President Barack Obama will unveil on Monday, according to a senior administration official and White House sources who spoke on condition of not being identified. The information was first reported byThe New York Times.
The plan's name refers to billionaireWarren Buffett, who has complained that wealthy Americans like himself pay less than their fair share in taxes under the current tax code.
Obama will propose several tax changes, one White House official said, adding that the Buffett Rule would replace the current Alternative Minimum Tax that was created to ensure people paid a minimum percentage of their income in taxes.
