The Oracle said as much in a letter to Buffett Rule scribe, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI):
Billionnaire investor Warren Buffet said in a letter Wednesday that he was “delighted” to support legislation to implement the “Buffett Rule,” which would ensure that those making over $1 million annually pay at least a 30 percent effective tax rate. “I’m delighted to be identified as a supporter of S. 2059,” Buffett wrote in a letter to Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), who introduced legislation to implement the rule. “I have no problem endorsing any large step in the direction of greater fairness in the Tax Code. … Thanks for what you are doing for our country,” Buffett added, according to the senator’s office.
