Senate Republicans Block Debate On Buffett Rule

On the eve of Tax Day, Senate Republicans voted to block a measure that would have made mega-investor Warren Buffett and millionaires like him pay at least a 30 percent tax rate. Although Buffett endorses such a rule, Senate Republicans call it an election year gimmick. Their Democratic counterparts insist it's all about fairness.
