I think some people died in Poland, didn't they? It is funny how the rich equate paying taxes (their fair share) with dying. I hope more of the little people, the average American folks like the rich speak up and get their rich names and faces in the press more and more. More air time for the super wealthy crying about taxes, please.

Dear Mr. Schwarzman:

We are so distraught over your plight... how can billions possibly sustain you in your time of need? I suggest that America's greedy elderly just go ahead and sign over their social security checks, pronto. You poor dear, how dare anyone suggest that you pay taxes on that pittance of an income under which you’ve been forced to labor? The nerve.

You know, in other countries this wouldn't be viewed as a big deal. The rich are normally taxed more, because they've gained so much more. It's the universal law. Only in the US, with its lobbyist culture in the government will this become "pity-us-the-billionaire" story.

why don't they just start calling Obama the anti-Christ! good grief. one more hitler reference and i'm going to hurl. this president is not the personification of evil they need to scapegoat.
Obama hasn't done anything - anything to hurt our country or business - as much or more than w and his
gang of thugs and thieves.

What do you mean "start" calling Obama the anti-Christ? They've already been around that block more than once and Beckerhead is off on another go around. I kid you not.

If I could have your attention, if listen closely you can hear the sound of the World's smallest violin playing a soothing song for our battered billionaires. Yes, these are the same people who used their investment pools to speculate in the commodities markets and ran the price of gasoline up to $4.00 per gallon. These aren't necessarily investors who build an economy; many are the leeches who feed off the economy. While millions of middle class Americans pay over 30% taxes on their meager earnings these pampered princes pay less than half on their ill gotten billions.

As to the analogy about Hitler and Poland I hope they are liberated by the Red Army as was Poland.

Since it's a complete lie and a stepping aside from responsibility, Schwatzie's statement is like bush invading Iraq.

Steven Schwarzman, the billionaire who does not want to pay his fair share of the tax burden to the country that helped him become rich. This smacks of GREED with a sense of outrageous entitlement.

Billionaires, they are cheap B!@$$#@&#$

Wow, way to be insensitive! If he wasn't a billionaire I'd like to send him to Poland. Let's see what they have to say about his analogy.

Smear and Fear anyone? The US has become mired in Greed. Bushie accelerated that Greed with tax cuts to the p!gs at the trough. Now those p!gs don't want to pay taxes. Let the diminishing working/middle class pay for the country's existence.

It's easier to blame Obama because the "so called" progressives need something to whine about. Less than 2 yrs into O's presidency, the progressives want another Rethug in the WH to further diminish the country. Americans deserve their demise.
