Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama invited Warren Buffett’s secretary to listen to his State of the Union address from the First Lady’s box, according to the White House.

Debbie Bosanek will have a balcony seat as the president explains his support for what he calls the “Buffett Rule,” proposed by Warren Buffett, to make sure the wealthiest taxpayers don’t pay a lower effective rate than middle-income earners. Dan Pfeiffer, the White House communications director, made the announcement on Twitter.
