Alexander vows to vote against 'Buffett Rule'

KINGSPORT — U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander pledged Thursday to vote against the so-called “Buffett Rule” called for by President Barack Obama to make millionaires pay at least 30 percent of their income in taxes.

The Obama administration is calling for a Senate vote on the rule, named for billionaire investor Warren Buffett, who the administration says pays a lower effective tax rate than his secretary.
