THE ONE-PERCENT: Warren Buffett’s Secretary Likely Makes Between $200,000 And $500,000/Year. “I have nothing against Debbie Bosanke earning a half million or even more. Buffet is a major player in the world economy. His secretary deserves good compensation. At her income, however, she is scarcely the symbol of injustice that Obama wishes her to project.”

I’d like to see her income tax returns. And Warren Buffett’s.

UPDATE: Buffett and His Secretary Can’t Get Their Story Straight on Taxes. “Chalk this up as the first strategic blunder of the Obama campaign. The poster-child of their class warfare narrative, Warren Buffett’s secretary, has just made a tax claim that, if true, reveals her to belong in the top 1% of income earners in America.”

STILL MORE: Tom Maguire is skeptical. Well, if Warren Buffett’s secretary doesn’t make at least $200K, he’s a putz. But Maguire joins the call to release the returns.
