At the risk of beating a dead horse, if we are going to count the employer's contribution to Social Security and Medicare to calculate an individual worker's tax burden (as we should), why should we not count the corporate taxes paid by Berkshire on behalf of shareholders when computing an investor's individual tax burden?Seems like a legitimate question for the annual meeting if Becky, Carol, or Andrew happen to be reading this discussion board.The answer to that one is easy: counting corporate taxes would increase the apparent taxes paid by shareholders, and lessen the justification to raise taxes on the wealthy.Regards, DTM(no horse is so dead that another beating or two is not worthwhile)
