Buffett Rule

Earlier today, the Senate voted on the Buffett Rule which would have ensured that the ultra-rich in our country pay their fair share.  Named for billionaire investor Warren Buffett who, because of the tax policies enacted under the previous administration, pays a lower tax rate than his secretary, the Buffett Rule would only affect one in 500 Americans and raise over $47 billion in revenue which could be used for investment in our country's crumbling infrastructure by building roads and bridges and putting firefighters, teachers, nurses and other critical public servants back on the job.

But how did Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) vote? With the 1% of course, allowing senate republicans to filibuster a piece of legislation that is supported by a whopping 72% of Americans.

Shame.
