In Class Warfare, Guess Which Class Is Winning
An interview with Warren Buffett.
By BEN STEIN
Published: November 26, 2006

....Even though I agreed with him, I warned that whenever someone tried to raise the issue, he or she was accused of fomenting class warfare.....

"Theres class warfare, all right," Mr. Buffett said, "but its my class, the rich class, thats making war, and were winning."

1. But only as long as
the rest of the population keeps playing their game.

2. Bush tax cuts cut tax intake: Clinton fiscal 2000 was $1 trillion, Bush 03 was $0.79 T, Bush 06=$1T
"the federal government collected roughly $1.004 trillion in income taxes from individuals in fiscal 2000, the last full year of President Bill Clintons merry rule. It fell to a low of $794 billion in 2003 after Mr. Bushs tax cuts (but not, you understand, because of them, his supporters like to say). Only by the end of fiscal 2006 did income tax revenue surpass the $1 trillion level again"

3. Why do you suppose Ben Stein doesn't "... want class warfare."?
