(Newser) – Warren Buffett continued his plea that the rich be taxed more—but he went a bit further today than he did last week. “There's no sacrifice among the rich,” he told ABC’s This Week, according to Politico. “There's plenty of sacrifice going on now. I mean, if you look at Iraq and now Afghanistan, there's been sacrifice. But I would doubt if you take the people on the Forbes 400 list—whether many of them have a child or a grandchild that served in Iraq or Afghanistan—they come home in body bags to Nebraska, but they don't have to call up anybody up at the country club to notify them.” Click here for more on last week’s comments.
