Draft Warren Buffett’s Secretary for President!
We should draft Warren Buffett's Secretary for President! But on the Democrat primary to run against Obama, she might beat him.
Forbes reports that Ms. Bosanek makes between $200,000 and $500,000 a year…
Warren Buffet's secretary, Debbie Bosanek, served as a stage prop for President Obama's State of the Union speech. She was the President's chief display of the alleged unfairness of our tax system – a little person paying a higher tax rate than her billionaire boss.
Bosanek's prominent role in Obama's "fairness" campaign piqued my curiosity, and I imagine the curiosity of others. How much does her boss pay this downtrodden woman? So far, no one has volunteered this information. [snip]
Taxpayers earning adjusted gross incomes of $200,000 to $500,000, pay an average tax rate of nineteen percent. Therefore Buffet must pay Debbie Bosanek a salary above two hundred thousand.
We must wait for further details to learn how much more than $200,000 she earns. The tax tables tell us about average ranges. For all we know she earns closer to a half million each year, but that is pure speculation.
According to The Smoking Gun, Warren Buffett's poor poor secretary just bought a second home!
Despite a heavy tax burden, Warren Buffett's secretary last year was able to purchase a second home in Arizona, a residence complete with a swimming pool and a "professional PGA putting green," according to real estate records.
Debra Bosanek, 55, and her husband Gerald bought the 2100-square-foot home in Surprise, a city outside Phoenix. The Bosaneks paid $144,000 for the four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath property (the purchase was financed, in part, by a $115,200 mortgage).
Good thing the media is obsessed with Mitt Romney's tax returns, huh?
