Warren Buffett Secretary Buys Second Home

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett’s secretary Debra Bosanek has become the face of President Barack Obama’s so-called Buffett Rule, which maintains that the secretaries of wealthy Americans should not pay a higher tax rate than their boss.

Yet despite her presumably crushing tax burden, Bosanek and her husband last year were able to buy a second home in Arizona complete with a swimming pool and putting green.

The Bosaneks bought the 2,100-square-foot home in Surprise, a city outside Phoenix, paying $144,000 for the four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath property, according to The Smoking Gun website.

Their principal residence is in Bellevue, Neb., not far from Buffett’s corporate headquarters in Omaha. That home, built in 2000 and valued last year at $217,000, also has four bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths — but no swimming pool or putting green.

Bosanek, 55, attended Obama’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday as a guest of first lady Michelle Obama to spotlight the president’s proposal to impose a minimum tax rate of 30 percent on Americans earning more than $1 million a year.

Buffett — who is worth an estimated $50 billion — said in an August editorial that he paid an effective income tax rate of 17.4 percent, lower than the wage earners in his office, and has said of that discrepancy: “How can that be fair?”

Mitt Romney called attention to the income tax disparity this week when he released his income tax returns for two years, showing that he paid a 13.9 percent rate on his earnings in 2010 and 15.4 percent in 2011.

For her to be paying that rate and also to be buying extra homes she has to make over two hundred thousand a year. And that makes her rich in Obama's book!

I'm sure she works long hours for Warren and she's his right hand. A good Executive Assistant is priceless to these guys. I'm sure she earns every penny she makes.

Yes, she probably does.

There are both male and female secretaries for the well off that make very, very good bucks.

People don't understand that the rich are not always evil, greedy and mean spirited. They are also Americans here in the USA. Rich people hire other Americans.

Thats what America is about.

Could be her principal residence is payed off. If she had 50,000 down on her new property it wouldnt cost much at all per month. Maybe her husband works,,maybe she is in the minority of Americans that pays things off on time or early and doesn't rack up debt .
There is too much that is unknown to come to the conclusions that would suit your perspective on things.

Dennis! Are you kidding? You know that all rich people make their employees work for 25 cents an hour and feeds them asbestos for lunch!

True. No one accused the rich of being evil. All we'd like to see is that they pay their fair share in taxes and simplify the Tax code so there are no more loopholes that they can take advantage of, with their armies of accountants.

Please define "rich" and who decides what a "fair share" is?

Just remember -- if the world didn't suck, we would fall off.

Obama has defined "rich" as anyone that makes over two hundred thousand dollars a year. So Buffett's Secretary is rich!
And Obama's idea of fair share if already known to be "All of it"!

One thing ALL Americans understand. Well, ones with any brains at all anyway:

Evading taxes is illegal. Avoiding taxes is legal.

Since 1913 when the federal tax code came about, Americans have been searching for ways to avoid paying taxes. Or, at least a portion of them. Every single American, at one time or another, wishes to do that. You would be crazy not to.

Thats why an entire industry in tax accounting and tax lawyers have sprung up to do their work.

A fair tax code would, for all practical purposes, eliminate all that.
