Not to get overly political...

Not to get overly political, but if the second richest person in the world, Warren Buffett, can see this, why is it so hard for everyone else?  News story here, except below.

"Putting $1,000 in the pockets of 310,000 families with urgent needs is going to provide far more stimulus to the economy than putting the same $310 million in my pockets," Buffett added.
He closed the piece by saying that the "government can't deliver a free lunch to the country as a whole. It can, however, determine who pays for lunch. And last week the Senate handed the bill to the wrong party."

Buffet better be careful. The may take away his key to the Millionaire's Club.

It sounds like he wouldn't want to hang around with the stuffy old farts who would go there anyway.
