Half of Obama’s tax increase consists of allowing the Bush tax cuts on upper-income taxpayers to expire. “Upper-income” includes couples making $250,000 a year. If Buffett wants to put his money where his mouth is, he should give away all his wealth, move with his wife to the suburbs of New York, Washington, or San Francisco, adopt a few young kids, and live on an income of $250,000 a year.
