Obama's 'Buffett Rule' on Taxes for Rich Blocked in Senate

U.S. Capitol


Senate Republicans on Monday blocked President Barack Obama's "Buffett Rule" legislation, which would have put a 30 percent minimum income tax on millionaires.

In a mostly party line vote, Democrats, as expected, failed to garner the 60 votes needed in the 100-member Senate to move forward to a full debate and vote on the bill.
