White House & Buffett Rule

The White House is the official residence and principal workplace of the President of the United States. The Buffett Rule is a tax plan proposed by President Barack Obama in 2011 to alleviate income inequality in the United States between the top 1% of Americans and the remaining 99% of Americans, due to the income growth in the 1% group as compared to the 99% group. 5.0/5

President Barack Obama's secretary paid taxes at a higher rate than he did in 2011 despite having a "substantially lower income," the White House said Friday, casting the disparity as an argument for Congress to adopt the so-called "Buffett Rule."

Jay Carney, the White House Press Secretary, noted in a statement that Obama's 2011 effective federal income tax rate is 20.5%, and that the president's own policies would result in higher taxes for the Obama family. The president earns a salary of $400,000 for his day job. His total earnings are much higher because his books -- "Dreams From My Father," and "The Audacity of Hope" -- continue to attract buyers. The Obamas reported paying $162,074 in federal taxes. They donated $172,130, or 22% of their income, to 39 different charities. Obama is donating the proceeds from his latest book, "Of Thee I Sing," to a Fisher House scholarship fund for children of fallen and disabled soldiers. This year, the contribution was $117,130. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill reported income of $379,035, but gave only $5,540 -- or 1.4% -- to charity. The release comes at the end of a week in which the Obama campaign made a concerted push for the so-called Buffett Rule, a tax law change that would force some of th ...
Do you remember a few months ago when the Obama administration was caught changing the biographies of former presidents on the White House website? They would go in and add something that had to do with Barack Obama. For instance, the bio for Ronald Reagan read: "In a June 28, 1985, speech, Reagan called for a fairer tax code, one where a multimillionaire did not have a lower tax rate than his secretary. Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule." There is no telling where this administration and the propaganda campaign will take us next. What will disappear from Obama’s history? Dodd-Frank? ObamaCare? What will end up credited to Barack Obama .. killing Osama Bin Laden? Oh wait .. they’ve already claimed that one.

Wow ... I just got an email from the White House inviting me to a private call. I think they sent it to the wrong guy! Disclaimer. If you are with the press please forget you saw this! - Friends: Please join us on April 20, 2012 at 11:00 am Eastern (GMT-5) for a conference call with leaders from South Carolina to discuss the Ryan-Republican budget. The President believes we should build an economy where everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same set of rules. President Obama outlined investments in education, workforce training, clean energy and infrastructure that will create an America built to last. He also proposed the Buffett Rule, which says that if you make more than $1 million a year, you should pay at least the same percentage of your income in taxes as middle class families do. On the other hand, if you make under $250,000 a year — like 98 percent of American families do — your taxes shouldn’t go up. But the Ryan-Republican budget, passed by the House of Representa ...
One of the few things I strongly agree with the President on :.It turns out that President Obama also pays a lower tax rate than his secretary, just like billionaire investor Warren Buffett. That's one of the reasons Obama backs the Buffett Rule, the subject of a Senate debate today, aides said. "That is the point of the Buffett Rule," said White House spokesman Jay Carney. "The tax code should not written in a way that allows the wealthiest Americans to pay taxes at a lower rate than middle-class Americans.".

Barry comes to BocaApril 07, 2012|By Scott Travis, Sun Sentinel Florida Atlantic University is hurriedly planning one of its biggest events ever: a visit Tuesday from President Barack Obama. The president is scheduled to speak at 2:55 p.m. in FAU Arena.
