Daily breaking news and news the liberal media doesn't want you to know, won't report, or just daily news issues.

Americans for many years have had to rely on left leaning biased news reporting from liberal media such as NBC, ABC, and CBS and the New York Times. As most of these outlets struggle to remain on the air and in print, the new media is flourishing and people are hearing both sides of the issues. This forum will provide people with a place to discuss daily news issues of any kind or discuss articles not printed or aired by the liberal news outlets.

OWO: you need to re-read the story on Buffet. It is clear you did not understand what Buffet said.

I will cut you a break. When Warren does speak he sometimes gets a little technical and sometimes he talk over the simple minded.

I am confident if you re-read what he said on his secretary's taxes you will get it.

People pay millions in dollars in taxes and you call that a pass? There is a report on the CNBC web site, use Google:

Buried inside a Congressional Budget Office report this week was this nugget: when it comes to individual income taxes, the top 40 percent of wage earners in America pay 106 percent of the taxes. The bottom 40 percent...pay negative 9 percent.

CNBC says “You read that right. One group is paying more than 100 percent of individual income taxes, the other is paying less than zero”.

The percentages remain the same for 2015.

Ben Affleck insisted on censoring the fact that one of his ancestors owned slaves from PBS show “Finding Your Roots,” the Sony email hack has revealed. In a hacked Sony email from July 22, 2014, now available on WikiLeaks, the show’s host, Henry Louis Gates Jr., writes to Sony USA chief Michael Lynton asking for advice: “One of our guests has asked us to edit out something about one of his ancestors–the fact that he owned slaves. Now, four or five of our guests this season descend from slave owners, including Ken Burns. We’ve never had anyone ever try to censor or edit what we found. He’s a megastar. What do we do?”

You/we will have that tax issue when politicians, regardless of which party the belong to, are wealthy. They do in fact construct and pass the laws and will not bear such burdens on themselves. There were times when holding a public office did not mean immediate wealth like it does now. A hundred years ago the US president did not even have a secretary and had to purchase their own stationery and stuff like that. It was considered an honor to serve. A far cry from what we have now.

NCN...everyone gets a pass in one shape, fashion or form. we all can quibble over how little or how much. the fairest tax code is the one that taxes equally. unfortunately that system would be too fair and remove the politics and guilt taxing thats permeates our tax code now. having a fair flat tax would force our politicians to do there job and be held accountable in a fairly straight forward method. i understand the thought that the wealthy have an obligation to lift up everyone economically. we may actually see that scenario coming to life but not through the taxation process but by the devaluation process and removal of being the leading world currency. the unfortunate end is the lowering instead of increasing ones economic health.

OWO....that seems to be your chicken and the egg question....you can always remedy your "missing" link question by peering up the egg chute if you will and wait for the magic to happen. don't get angry if things get messy or when someone says HA HA "the yolks on you!"

Regardless , its very evident that the wealthy get a pass on taxes ! Why else would the richest man in the country ask why his secretary pays more in taxes than he does !

NCN...i agree. the loophole does exactly what it was intended to do. the government finally did something that actually works as written. if only.....

This would bring in hundreds of billions revenue as well as more than $1 trillion toward investment and/or shareholders. Republicans refuse to address it, preferring instead to go after government employees, food stamps, etc.

yep, gotta love the repubs thinking...

Two of the key findings in the report tell the story:Corporate tax breaks will total $108 billion in FY2013 - more than 1.5 times what the U.S. government spends on education funding. Between 2007 and 2013, the revenue lost from U.S. corporations deferring taxes on income earned abroad rose 200%, going from $14 billion to $42 billion.All tax breaks for individuals will exceed $1 trillion this year, with about 17% of the biggest individual tax breaks going to the top 1% of earners. In fact, many individual tax breaks disproportionately benefit wealthy households.

Because of this loophole companies move jobs, factories and profit centers outside the country, and companies that do not are left at a disadvantage. The taxes due on this money are somewhere upwards of $700 billion. The amount held outside the country grows every year -- along with the number of jobs, factories and profit centers companies move to take advantage of this.
