N.C. supports the Buffett Rule

North Carolinians support the so-called Buffett Rule, which requires households earning $1 million or more a year to pay a minimum of 30% of their income in taxes.

Are you listening Congress?

In the latest Elon University Poll, 61% of respondents said they support the Buffett Rule, which was killed two weeks ago by a Republican filibuster in the Senate.

While Mitt Romney might be able to get ground in N.C. by campaigning on the economy, President Obama could make hay by campaigning on the Buffett Rule.

Nationally, a Gallup Poll taken earlier this month found 60% favored the rule.
