Bloomberg Not Hillary’s Favorite Billionaire

From the Wall Street Journal blog Washington Wire:

Speaking at an event last night in Ottumwa [Iowa], Clinton spoke about how the tax code is “totally tilted towards the wealthiest Americans.” She cited a survey Buffett did of people who worked at his company, Berkshire Hathaway in Omaha, Neb. He found that while 17% of his income went for taxes, secretaries and middle managers paid rates of 25% to 30%.

“Buffett is my favorite billionaire,” Clinton said, sparking applause from the crowd of nearly 500.
