Buffett challenges Murdoch on tax returns

New York (CNNMoney) – Warren Buffett has a message for Rupert Murdoch and the Wall Street Journal: Sure, I'll release my tax returns, if you do too.

Last week, the Wall Street Journal published an editorial that asked Buffett to disclose his tax returns. The piece, "Mr. Buffett's Tax Secrets," took issue with Buffet's plan to hike taxes on some of the super-rich.

    First rule of poker. The only time you should bluff is when your opponent cannot afford to do so. I think Murdoch is going to pull a "trump" on this challenge and fold.

    Buffett is just another hypocrite Democrat tax evader. His company has been fighting their taxes and Buffet gives all his money to Gates' charitable foundation, insteading of to the government, as he wants others to do. Geez Warren, Obama demanded a LOT from you to get that medal.

    Case in point of what's wrong with the GOP/Tea Party crowd: they spew a lot of FOX NOISE talking points and make statements without backing them up with factual information.

    Where's your boy Perry? Is he hunting at N*****head?

    Are you sure? Better use the new laws to check the ID. How many name changes have we seen because of self burnout? I think it is time for more change.

    Heck with Warren Buffets tax returns... How about your companies simply pay their taxes Warren!! How about YOU paying YOUR FAIR SHARE to the government instead of giving it all away to avoid estate taxes. Nice Warren avoiding PAYING YOUR FAIR SHARE and throwing the other old and elderly under the bus.

    Buffett is just another hypocrit Democrat tax evader and cheat.
