Pat Buchanan Challenges Warren Buffett: 'Set an Example and Send a Check for $5 Billion to the Federal Government'
By Noel Sheppard | August 15, 2011 | 09:11

The liberal media are predictably fawning over billionaire Warren Buffett's op-ed in the New York Times Monday calling for new taxes on the super-rich.

This led MSNBC's Pat Buchanan on Monday's "Morning Joe" to challenge the Oracle of Omaha asking, "Why doesnít he set an example and send a check for $5 billion to the federal government?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

PAT BUCHANAN: No, Iím writing a note to Warren Buffett. But look, Iím a little fed up with these people who come on, you know, their big op-eds, all these admonitions. Why doesnít he set an example and send a check for $5 billion to the federal government? Heís got about $40 billion. You know, you had a plan up there, I talked to Howie Carr at Boston where the super-rich could contribute an extra amount. It was something like one-tenth of one percent did it. You get all this noise from these big rich folks. Let them send checks and set an example instead of writing op-eds.


Of course, the liberals in the media never seem to think about this hypocrisy.
