Democrats Target GOP Senators on "Buffett Rule"

Democrats plan to target Republican senators in 13 states next week "in an effort to pressure them to vote for the 'Buffett Rule' tax on millionaires, the Wall Street Journal reports.

They are hoping to use a April 16 Senate vote "to divide Republicans and make their leaders -- including Mitt Romney, the front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination -- appear out of touch with voters."

The Republican senators represent Tennessee, Missouri, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Maine, Nevada, Nebraska, Alaska, Ohio, Florida, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Iowa.
