WHO WE ARE GET INVOLVED CANDIDATE SURVEYS C4L FOUNDATION ON THE ISSUES ABOUT AUDIT THE FED

Raise Your Own Taxes, Warren

Warren Buffett is being covered all over the news today for wanting to pay more in taxes.  Well, I've got good news for you, Warren! 

Via TreasuryDirect.gov:

How do you make a contribution to reduce the debt?

There are two ways for you to make a contribution to reduce the debt:

  • You can make a contribution online either by credit card, checking or savings account at Pay.gov
  • You can write a check payable to the Bureau of the Public Debt, and in the memo section, notate that it's a Gift to reduce the Debt Held by the Public. Mail your check to:

    Attn Dept G
    Bureau of the Public Debt
    P. O. Box 2188
    Parkersburg, WV 26106-2188

So not only can Mr. Buffett pay more to Uncle Sam, he could donate his entire fortune to paying down the debt! (Not that it would even make a dent.)

Somehow, I doubt he'll take me up on this offer.  But he would if he were serious about the government needing money.
