Rhode Islanders Rally in Support of Whitehouse’s Buffett Rule Legislation

As the Senate prepares to vote on U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse’s Buffett Rule legislation, Rhode Islanders from across the state will rally alongside the Senator on Friday, May 13, 2012 to show their support for the legislation.

Whitehouse’s bill, the Paying a Fair Share Act, would ensure that multi-million-dollar earners pay at least a 30 percent effective federal tax rate.

Sheldon's legislation prevents the highest-income earners from paying lower tax rates than middle-class families.  The bill has 13 co-sponsors, including Senator Jack Reed, and the Senate will be voting on this important bill on April 16th, the eve of Tax Day.

DETAILS:

Friday, April 13th at 10:00 a.m.
