Sen. Brown Supports Rich People Over The Poor

Massachusetts Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren (D) criticized Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) on Tuesday for opposing the "Buffett Rule," saying the issue reveals a major difference in what they represent as candidates.

"Just last week, Scott Brown said in an interview that he thinks Mitt Romney and Warren Buffett should get special tax breaks that are not available to most Americans. I don't think that's fair," Warren said in a new post on Blue Mass Group, a New England independent political blog.

"This is one of the places where Scott Brown and I see things differently," she said.

The "Buffett Rule," named after billionaire William Buffett, would require people who make more than $1 million to pay at least 30 percent in taxes.
