Reagan and Obama agree on the Buffett Rule. I guess Republicans will oppose anything Obama does, even if it means disagreeing with their Saint Ronnie.
UPDATE: Picking up on this, Obama has offered to change the name of the bill to the “Reagan Rule“:
Some years ago, one of my predecessors traveled across the country pushing for the same concept. He gave a speech where he talked about a letter he had received from a wealthy executive who paid lower tax rates than his secretary and wanted to come to Washington and tell Congress why that was wrong.
That wild-eyed socialist, tax-hiking class warrior was Ronald Reagan. I know that position might disqualify him from the Republican primaries these days, but what Ronald Reagan was calling for then is the same thing that we’re calling for now … And if it will help convince folks in Congress to make the right choice, we could call it the Reagan rule instead of the Buffett rule.
