George Soros Can’t Wait For The Buffett Rules

“As one of the people who will be directly affected by the proposed new rules, let me say that I wholeheartedly endorse them,” says George Soros of carried interest and Obama’s proposed Buffett rule, which would force those making more than $1 million to pay at least as much federal income and payroll taxes as those who make less.

    why all the ppl endorsing these ideas share the same common characteristics of being closer to death than any of us?

    Kudos to the special effect team….I can't even see the wires yanking up his eyebrows…

    He looks like Thurfur Hawat from the very bad David Lynch version of Dune.

  9. Shirley says:

    He gets no respect… no respect.

  10. BryonLong says:

    Actually UBS stands to benefit, since George Soros's tax bill alone would fund their operations for the next 3 years…

  14. guest says:

    I agree with these laws as long as they apply retroactively over the past 25 years – wonder if that would impact the level of support from these octogenarians

    • schmoe says:

      In Buffet's case, up until six or seven years ago, he said he didn't give any money to charity because he could do a better job of compounding it himself (to be given away later, of course).

  15. Guest says:

    He " wholeheartedly endorse" the change on taxes for carried interest. Big surprise since he closed his hedge fund and returned all outsde invetor capital, he will never again earn carried interest.

    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of Sapho that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains, stains become a warning. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

  20. ds77 says:

    Is this the same guy whose hedge fund was off-shore, and atypically for an American citizen, was able to postpone capital gains taxes for about 20 years? Do as he says not as he does.

    • I'm a Dude says:

      his funds, when they were open to outside (non-US) investors, were based in Curacao.
      just living the American dream old George is doing.

  21. TheodoreBallgamePhD says:

    The man looks about as fucked up as a washed wallet.

  22. Not Impressed says:

    Buffet Rule #1: Always use clean plate!!!

    When 900 years old you reach, look this good you will not.

  24. TOF says:

    Perhaps George should recant his excitement and invest in a better than sub-prime plastic surgeon.

  25. WeeWee says:

    George Soros has never paid taxes in the United States, Nor will he ever. Now who's laughing at you.

    ' It takes courage to be a pig'
    george soros The New Market Wizards.

    Guess a how lot hasn't changed. This guy is about making money instead of the old way the new way
    is based on almost soley inside information, media and political influence at the highest level, He has been convicted of insider trading in France yes Convicted and has yet to serve a day in jail. He is no longer relevant in the hedge industry because he really doesnt trade he buys influence. Strip away his access to information for a year and see how good he is at actually trading, research, and risk managment.
