Graham Says Obama’s ‘Buffet Tax’ Plan Is a Political Move

Sept. 18 (Bloomberg) -- South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said that a proposal by President Barack Obama to impose a new levy on those earning more than $1 million a year is a “political move” and is “class warfare.”

Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union” today that he supports parts of Obama’s jobs bill, including a plan to cut the payroll tax and some of the proposed infrastructure spending.
