Clinton says she wants to go beyond 'Buffett rule' on taxes
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says she wants to build upon the so-called "Buffett rule" pushed by the Obama administration to require higher taxes from the wealthy.
With billionaire investor Warren Buffett by her side at a campaign rally in Omaha Wednesday, she said the country's tax policies need to go further in order to "reshuffle the deck."
Buffett was the namesake for a push by the Obama administration to seek higher taxes on those earning $1 million or more.
Clinton said: "Warren is 100 percent right, as usual."
The famed investor says he would be "delighted" to see Clinton take the oath of office.
Clinton was campaigning in deep-red Nebraska, which is holding its caucus on March 5.
Clinton jokes she wants Democrats to tell their Republican friends, "I don't have horns."
