Millionaires Support Warren Buffett’s Tax Proposal As Long As It Doesn’t Apply To Them

From the “This Will Surprise No One” files comes this tasty little tidbit from Bloomberg News:

Millionaires support Warren Buffett’s view that the wealthiest should pay more in taxes, as long as it’s other rich Americans, according to a survey released today.

I’m not even sure there’s anything I can add to that.  Where is the disconnect?  Is it that they don’t consider themselves to be wealthy because their net worth is in the millions and not the billions?  Sorry, Daddy Warbucks, but you can’t pretend to magnanimously support Buffett’s call for top earners to pay more taxes and then exclude yourself from the equation.  Why bother with the charade?  Just come out and say “I got mine, so screw everybody else.”  At least that would be believable.
