Right now, a mountain of loopholes make it possible for millionaires and billionaires to cut their tax rates to absurd levels. Warren Buffett's
secretary pays almost 36%, while Mitt Romney pays less than 14%.

That's just wrong. Secretaries and schoolteachers shouldn't
pay a higher tax share than Warren Buffett or Mitt
Romney. Even Buffett himself agrees.
Next week, the Senate will vote on the "Buffett Rule," which would
close these loopholes and make sure that corporate CEOs don't
pay a lower tax rate than the rest of us.
But standing in the way of this common sense reform are extreme
Republicans, backed by billionaires like the Koch Brothers.
President Obama and Democratic leaders need to know you stand
behind them in this.
