I agree with Warren Buffet to "Stop Codling the Super-Rich." This is the title of his NY Times editorial. Please read the following and ask yourself if you agree with the current tax code the taxes us poor folks at a higher rate than billionaires.

"Last year my federal tax bill — the income tax I paid, as well as payroll taxes paid by me and on my behalf — was $6,938,744. That sounds like a lot of money. But what I paid was only 17.4 percent of my taxable income — and that’s actually a lower percentage than was paid by any of the other 20 people in our office. Their tax burdens ranged from 33 percent to 41 percent and averaged 36 percent."

Those of you Republicans who vote to support the idea that the rich should be richer and you should be poorer are lacking in logic. Why do you accept this: (1) to prevent gays from marrying, (2) to buy as many 50 caliber rifles as you can afford, (3) to return the US to the white-male only society of the 1950s, (4) to make the US government a theocracy,  . . .
