NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Given his extensive interviews and widely read op-ed pieces, it's clear that Warren Buffett is never against sharing his opinion with the public. In many cases, however, he appears willing to let his wallet do the talking.This week in a letter to Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R., Kan.), billionaire investor Warren Buffett stated that he had made nearly $63 million last year. What's more, the Nebraska native, who has recently come out as a vocal proponent of tax increases for the super wealthy, also remarked that his federal taxes totaled less than $7 million, or 17.4%. These tax figures were reflective of those Buffett had mentioned in his most recent New York Times op-ed piece, "Stop Coddling the Super-Rich."
