Credo: Tell Democrats: Buffett Rule is not enough, end the Bush tax cuts
- This week, Democrats in Washington are taking up the fight for taxfairness, pressuring Republicans on the "Buffett Rule" to make sure

It's a great start, but progressives need to use this opportunity to
pressure Democratic leadership to deal with the whole problem. In addition
to the Buffett Rule, Democratic leaders need to pledge to allow the
disastrous Bush tax cuts that only benefit the wealthiest to expire and
commit to reforming the corporate tax code -- so that corporations making
billions are forced to pay their taxes like everyone else.
I just signed a petition asking the Democratic leadership to end the Bush
tax cuts for the wealthy and make corporations pay their fair share. Join
