Zing! Actress Patricia Heaton, an independent thinker who refuses to toe the Hollyweird line, offered that zinger about the “Buffett Rule” via Twitter today. Ah, fair share! In the minds of liberals, it’s always for thee, but not for me.

Twitter users ate it up.


Bingo. We adore her, too. Never change, Patricia.

    Buffett is a FRAUD.

  • Maxx

    Curious…what’s prevented Buffet from paying more taxes than legally owed? He claims he doesn’t pay enough…ok, does his pen not work anymore? Cut the check and shut up already.

    • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/YJ5G3N25JBSWDNFKBTXEVLR4NU Walt

      Part of it is the time he’s been spending in court trying to get out of paying close to $1 billion in back taxes his company owes. He could start with paying what he owes before complaining that he doesn’t pay enough.

      • Golphin

        Zactly! He was on CNBC in Feb 07 taking questions from viewers and one was if he believed so much in paying more—- why didn’t he just cut a check to government? He was already preaching for higher taxes. It gets you a free pass from media.
        His response was that his charitable organizations would do a better job of effectively dispersing his money once he hit the dirt nap.
        Way to go hypocrite!

          he, and the others who don’t mind shelling out the taxes, should adopt poor families until they get on their feet.

        Well as Leona Helmsley said, “Taxes are for the little people.”

        Socialism and Communism always lead to massive increases in wealth for the liberal elites while everyone else goes broke.

        The wealthy families in the UK and Europe have essentially made it so no one can ever catch up to them…that is what John Kerry, Buffet, Eric Schmidt, Obama and lib elites are attempting.

        Communist leaders in China live like “princelings” and outdo each other with hideous displays of wealth while the avg person in China (the ones the MSM never show) live on 3000 per year!

    • Elaine

      The Republicans were onto something and they let it go. If these rich liberals are all for paying more taxes, then DO IT! Notice none of them signed on to that ‘check’ the income tax form to pay more and fill in the amount? Should have held their well manicured feet to the fire! They always let them get away with their hypocrisy.

    • kdk22

      Because he knows that even if he pays more than is due that won’t make a difference. Everyone making millions needs to be paying more, not just 1 person. It amazes me how much people stick up for low taxes on people making more than $1,000,000. In the “good ole days” the top tax rate was 70%+ in some years even 90%+, we have incredibly low taxes right now.

    Buffett should kick in and forward a few billion to the Muslim Brotherhood and get him some more cred in the WhiteHouse.

  • Mister A

    Send Buffett and his “Patriotic Millionaires” to pay.gov. Then, we’ll see how patriotic they really are.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brett.mcmicken Brett McMicken

    what’s telling is how all the rich liberals “don’t mind” paying taxes, yet, still cling to their lavish lifestyles and excesses of wealth. they are not going to pay so much that they cannot have that seventh mansion, that yacht, that private jet, etc.

  • dunst43

    Buffet doesn’t realize that his ‘friends’ have extra-territorial wealth tax legislation ready which will strip him of his money no matter where it is being held. They’re just waiting for the results of 2014.

  • Gallatin

    Patricia is wonderful!

  • Gallatin

    On a side note I never notice any hateful tweets to anything Patricia tweets, why is that? But anytime Stacey Dash tweets the hate and garbage just vomits across cyberspace. HMMMMMM.

    • http://twitter.com/die_mich_zwei Spatial Awareness

      Black on Black “verbal diarrhea”.

    • Yeah I Said It

      Because Stacy is black but thinking for herself. If you are black you are required to act, talk, vote and dress a certain way or you are accused of disowning your race. She is thinking outside of the black box and that is unforgivable in black democrat culture.

    • $23988033

      Liberals (the party that supported KKK, slavery, Jim Crow) hate any black person like Cain, Dash, or Dr Ben Carson espouse logical Conservative values and are not on the Gov’t dole. Ben Carson’s success story ruins the entire goal of the Dems to keep the blacks on the plantation.

      Don’t forget, liberal Margaret Sanger created Planned Parenthood to abort black children and today, sadly, blacks abort themselves at a higher rate than any other race.

      Republicans were the ones who supported Civil Liberty Laws…not the Dems.

      Look at Detroit…blacks are not given schools of choice (which Romney wanted) so over half of Detroit is functionally illiterate and cannot land a job.

      Under Obama…the US poverty rate is at a 40 yr high and blacks once again are hardest hit.

      Dem Party does not really want blacks to succeed. Obama is the front man for rich white men like George Soros to usher in UN Agenda 21.

  • KansasGirl

    Isn’t his company fighting the government over back taxes?

    • therantinggeek

      Haven’t kept up on it, to be honest with you…

      • KansasGirl

        You should.

    • http://twitter.com/die_mich_zwei Spatial Awareness

      Yep. $1 B-I-L-L-I-O-N Dollars…..

  • JBDestiny

    Buffet rule proposed won’t even apply to Buffet. It will increase tax on INCOME of $1 million or more – not WEALTH.

    • Kate

      That’s how he can claim he “pays less taxes” than his secretary. He is taxed on wealth, she is taxed on income.

      So many Liberals couldn’t understand capital gains tax vs. income tax to save their lives. I think some of them truly think that once you make a certain amount, you just stop being taxed. That whole “second bite of the apple” analogy is lost on them.

  • Kristy Patullo

    So awesome!

  • J.N. Ashby

    Fun fact: There’s a YouTube channel called eEconomics that explains how Warren Buffet’s company, Berkshire Hathaway, is actually a sort of tax haven that allows Buffet and his investors to horde their money by, instead of through dividends, buying back shares to increase the price and cause the holders to profit. Basically, Warren is a phony scumbag.

  • http://www.facebook.com/richard.jefferies.96 Richard Jefferies

    I had a knockdown drag out with my brother and law over this. I kept trying to tell him Warren Buffet wouldn’t pay one cent more no matter how much the government raised taxes, but he wouldn’t listen.

  • Jim

    If Ashley Judd gets to consider running for office, I think Patricia Heaton damn well deserves a chance to throw her hat into the ring.

  • kayakingfatso

    He says he doesn’t pay enough in taxes, yet I don’t see him, or the others who make the same claim, opening up their wallets to pay more. They’re nothing but all talk no action assclowns.

    • $23988033

      Best description of Socialists/Communists: They run elections based on taxing the rich but in reality they tax the middle class/poor and redistribute income back to rich.
      1% grew wealth by over 60% in past 4 years while US is at 40 yr high in poverty

      Proof: Dems supported sub prime mortgage scandal (which they are doing again) and they used trillions of our taxpayer money to bail out the wealthy 1% who created the mess and got rich off of it and then they got positions on Obama’s staff.

      Obama gave hundreds of millions to wealthy Hollywood, his Green Energy scams have transferred hundreds of millions to Pelosi’s, Gore etc.

      Washington DC is now the wealthiest area of the US and Gov’t employees and lobbyists are awash with your money while exempt from most of the major tax hikes.
      Socialism/Communism is tyranny….and it always has and always will fail.

  • sodakhic

    Run, Patricia, Run!

  • $23988033

    Buffet along with Eric Schmidt from Google both offshore their money in massive tax loopholes with Obama and then they demand we pay higher taxes…

    Buffet Rule only raises taxes on earned income over 1 million which means his income though dividends etc is EXEMPT

    Buffet has been suing the IRS for years over a measly tax bill which he claims he does not owe- Pay UP BUFFET!

    Entire Congress and Obama and Public Sector are exempt from ZeroCare and many are exempt from Soc Sec…they pay into a separate fund which they will not bankrupt

    Federal Gov’t employees (highly paid by us) owe 3 billion in back taxes and Obama aides owe over 800000.

    Pay up Dems!!!!

  • kdk22

    Except buffett doesn’t want to raise taxes on “middle america” he wants to raise them on wealthy america. But nice try though. Buffett wanted to raise taxes on $1,000,000 or more.
