The ultimate irony is Buffet, who created enormous wealth, is having a wealth destruction bill named after him. The last time such tax envy happened was under LBJ when 21 millionaires paid no taxes in 1967.
The solution from 1960s era class warriors was the Alternate Minimum Tax which today ensnares 20 million middle class taxpayers. The Buffet secretary gambit is audacious in its underlying assumption that most Americans are clueless idiots.
