Zach Trenholm for Barron's
President Obama, promoting the Buffett Rule for taxing millionaires at least 30%: "What drags our entire economy down is when...the gap between those at the very, very top and everybody else keeps growing wider and wider and wider and wider."
Barry did his share. He found a way to halve his taxable income from $1.7 million to a mere $800,000. Now that he's joined us po' folks, he wants them rich people to pay a minimum of 30%.
He paid 20.5% for 2011. Oh, and Barry's net worth is about $7 million.
