Obama Hosting Buffett’s Secretary for Speech
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.
