It must be nice to be so oppressed:
Despite a heavy tax burden, Warren Buffett’s secretary last year was able to purchase a second home in Arizona, a residence complete with a swimming pool and a “professional PGA putting green,” according to real estate records.
Debra Bosanek, 55, and her husband Gerald bought the 2100-square-foot home in Surprise, a city outside Phoenix. The Bosaneks paid $144,000 for the four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath property (the purchase was financed, in part, by a $115,200 mortgage).
Imagine what she could have afforded if she wasn’t paying so much in taxes.
One last thing, turns out this woman makes between $200,000 to $500,000 a year. That’s about the same amount as the Chief of Nuclear Operations at a nuclear power plant I’m familiar with.
By the way, good for her. I’m not begrudging her success at all. I congratulate it, in fact. I wish I could make that much money a year.
I do resent the idea that she’s an every person, someone right out of the steno pool who goes home to a messy house and a stack of bills she can’t handle. That’s just not the story and it’s dishonest.
