House passes new Buffett Rule

What a joke, doesn't mean a thing, but decided to share with you all anyways.

Tell me what you think....

"The House on Wednesday passed Republicans' own version of the Buffett Rule, which allows wealthy Americans to voluntarily pony up to reduce the deficit.

The bill, labeled the Buffett Rule Act, passed by voice vote, meaning Democrats and Republicans agreed with it. Under the legislation, which would still need Senate approval, taxpayers could check a box on their taxes and send in a check for more than they owe to the IRS."

Learn the tax code!

Every year, when you file your return and agree to let them keep withheld money, you're already paying more than you owe.

Beauts.

They would have done this instead of setting up offshore accounts if they had felt inclined. The fewer tax dollars these criminals have the better. I wished Buffet would keep his crappy money and leave us alone.

We don't need no stinkin' Buffet Rule.
