Sen. Reid To File Cloture On Buffet Rule Today, Set Up Vote Before Tax Day

A Senate leadership aide told ThinkProgress that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) plans to file cloture on the Buffett rule today, setting up a vote for April 16, one day before tax day. The Buffett rule is a minimum tax for millionaires, meant to ensure that the wealthiest Americans can’t pay lower taxes than middle-class families.
