President Obama spoke passionately in this State of the Union Address
about the need for fairness, and the rich doing their fair share.
Clearly in this event Buffet and what he pays in taxes compared to
his secretary was put forth as exhibit A.
The socalled Buffet Rule is being proposed as a fairness step and a
means to lower the debt.
It is however quite apparent with the article and video below that
this is more rhetoric than substance, more campaigning than solutions.
The selling of a higher order of Fairness is critical
to the campaign.
