Warren Buffet on US tax unfairness

Something that Warren Buffet first said a long time ago (around when Bush first talked about not taxing dividends) is now making the news in a fairly big way: “Mr Buffett said that he was taxed at 17.7 per cent on the $46 million he made last year, without trying to avoid paying higher taxes, while his secretary, who earned $60,000, was taxed at 30 per cent.”

It seems that democrats are more willing to take advice from Buffet than republicans considering that at least Bush and Schwarzanegger have ignored Buffet’s advice. Does anyone know of any republicans who have followed Buffet’s advice or democrats who ignored it?
