If class consciousness is an invention of the left, why do conservatives react differently to Warren Buffet?

I’ve seen it over and over. When someone criticizes the Right’s plans, step one is to argue that the critic “doesn’t know what they’re talking about” as they likely not wealthy or a business owner.

The only way he will pay for more tax is if the capital gains tax is raised as well. But he doesn’t want that. Income tax and capital gains taxes are two completely different things. Rich people already pay a much higher tax rate than the lower income levels on their INCOME. Everyone pays the same on capital gains, that is a flat tax (as it should be). Why should someone who has invested their… Read more »

Buffet could wipe with $100 bills and not miss it.

He is a senile old fool that feels guilty that hes got so much money.
