President Obama heads to Florida to tout the Buffett rule, a concept that he’s been promoting since before the State of the Union. He’ll head to Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton to give a speech about the economy where he’ll continue to push a tax increase for people making over a million dollars a year.
The vote in the Senate is in less than a week and while some say the bill won’t make it very far, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney says the vote will put senators on the record, "[T]hat's what votes do, they put Senators on record and we will see how senators handle that,....maybe those on the side of the fence, perhaps those who have been opposed to it in the past, will rethink their position, consider the fundamental fairness of the legislation and vote yes."
He’ll also attend three different fundraisers while in Florida.
