Obama Focuses Buffett Rule on Top 400 Earners

April 10, 2012

Bloomberg's Hans Nichaols reports that President Barack Obama is promoting a “Buffett rule” setting a minimum tax rate for top earners to ensure they pay a higher percentage of their income than middle-class families. For the most part, they already do. Obama plans to campaign for the Buffett rule today in Boca Raton, Florida, as he and Democrats in Congress move the issue to the forefront of their election-year agenda. He speaks on Bloomberg Television's "Inside Track." (Source: Bloomberg)
