  • Some millionaires are moving to Maryland

    I'm confused. Republican also-ran gubernatorial candidate Brian Murphy is trying to convince us that Warren Buffett was wrong when he told Congress he ought to be taxed more ("Warren Buffett is wrong," Aug 25). Mr. Murphy attempted to demonstrate that...
  • History shows that high taxes on rich don't work

    Warren Buffett has been extremely successful in his common sense approach to investments. However I must agree with Brian Murphy's conclusion that Mr. Buffett is wrong in his approach to taxes ("Warren Buffett is wrong," Aug. 25) but for an additional...
  • Raising taxes on the rich won't cause them to flee

    Brian Murphy suggests that if the super-rich were taxed more heavily they would move away ("Warren Buffett is wrong," Aug. 25). I don't believe that. California has higher taxes than Oklahoma, yet the super-rich still prefer California to Oklahoma....
  • GOP objections to taxing the rich don't add up

    In his recent opinion piece on taxing the rich, Brian Murphy packs in just about every Republican tax myth and deception as humanly possible ("Warren Buffett is wrong," Aug. 24). Somehow, in talking about Mr. Buffet's proposal to raise federal taxes on...

    Warren Buffett is wrong

  • Warren Buffett was right to call for higher taxes

    Warren Buffett was right for his call for higher taxes/debunking the "lost jobs" claim of the ideologues ("Buffett wants wealthier Americans taxed more," Aug. 16). Thanks to the tea party, controlling the spiraling debt is now a priority. Now the tea...
  • Obama needs to get over his China envy

    Obama needs to get over his China envy
    Up to 40 million Chinese people still live in caves. That's more than the populations of Texas and Illinois, combined. In fairness, a fraction of these caves are apparently pretty nice, complete with electricity and well-compacted dirt floors. But that'...
  • Should millionaires pay higher taxes - or just the rest of us?

    Should millionaires pay higher taxes - or just the rest of us?
    President Obama is proposing to raise taxes on millionaires in what's called the Buffett Rule. Billionaire Warren Buffett begged Congress to raise taxes on people like him, noting his tax rate is lower than his secretary's. Such a millionaire tax would...

    Time for 'Occupy' to grow up
    New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his counterparts in several other cities may have done the protesters of the "Occupy" movement the biggest possible favor by kicking them out of the parks where they have erected tent cities for the last several weeks....
  • President Obama needs some math lessons

    In his latest backpedaling to raise taxes on the rich, President Obama says "This is not class warfare — it's the math." So let's look at the math, together with history. First the math: Obama's "Buffett Rule" millionaire's tax fails to take...
