Why don’t you start with the taxes you already owe?
(The Hill) — Business mogul Warren Buffet is promising to match any donation Republican members make toward cutting the national deficit.
And he upped the ante when it came to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), saying he would match the leader’s donations three-to-one.
His pledge comes after McConnell said that if Buffett is feeling guilty about not paying more in taxes, he should just send in a check.
“With regard to his tax rate, if he’s feeling guilty about it, I think he should send in a check,” McConnell said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” in September.
Buffett told Time magazine: “It restores my faith in human nature to think that there are people who have been around Washington all this time and are not yet so cynical as to think that [the deficit] can’t be solved by voluntary contributions. And, I’ll even go three for one for McConnell.”
