    President Obama Speaks At Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, Florida – April 10 2012

    President Obama travelled to Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton Tuesday, where he spoke about the economy and took a stand for raising taxes on the rich.

    The President argued for a revised tax system and the Buffett Rule. The rule, named after billionaire investor Warren Buffett, calls for people with incomes over $1 million to pay at least a 30% percent tax rate.

    In his speech President Obama cited Buffett, who once said he paid a lower tax rate than his secretary.

    The speech comes days before the U.S. Senate votes on legislation, which includes the Buffett Rule. The vote is expected to take place on April 16, the day before the deadline for income taxes.
