Well at least he doesn't have bank accounts in the Cayman Islands like that 1%er LOOOZER Mitt Romney!

Sorry, couldn't resist a little Occupy snark.

Seriously, there is nothing wrong with Buffett avoiding as much tax as possible. What is wrong is his hypocrisy as he denounces others for doing the same thing.

I find it one click past hypocrisy on the bad scale. These policies drive revenue to his businesses at the expense of others' property rights.
