>>…Buffet conveniently legally evades taxes at a higher level with the way his insurance business is structured.  He has found a way to avoid taxes there for years, and is a hypocrite.

Sure, but the original statement contains a self-contradiction.  Tax evasion is illegal by definition.  If it is legal use of tax law, one is exercising tax reduction.

Two different (and legally opposite) things, similar outcome.
