Buffet Rule promotion by President Obama
Just Do It
Of course I like it and have since Warren rolled it out two years ago. What is taking so long to implement it? Oh, the Republican Congress, of course. Clear them out of there and let’s get some business done.
Here's a perfect example of the choice in this election:
Right now, some millionaires and billionaires are paying a lower tax rate than their secretaries.
President Obama wants to fix that with the Buffett Rule, which would ensure that people making more than $1 million a year can't get special deals to pay a lower rate than many middle-class families. It's an important part of his plan to reduce our deficit, pay for investments in programs to help our economy grow, and make the middle class stronger.
The President, Warren Buffett himself, and hundreds of thousands of supporters think it's the right thing to do.
If you agree, help make it happen: Stand with President Obama and ask the richest Americans to pay their fair share.
When it comes to our broken tax system, Romney is proposing additional breaks for the folks in the very highest brackets (folks like him, incidentally). He'd pay for them by cutting programs that invest in the middle class and help grow our economy, and by gutting Medicare and Social Security.
It comes down to a simple contrast in priorities.
If you believe we need commonsense solutions that ask everyone to pay their fair share to reduce the deficit and invest in the programs that grow our economy and strengthen the middle class, then show it.
Say you're with the President on this, and that you'd like to see the Buffett Rule passed by this Congress:
