Buffett pokes fun at himself at annual meeting
Warren Buffett jokes about fame his secretary gained by attending State of the Union speech
By The Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) ' Billionaire Warren Buffett's secretary got to attend the State of the Union speech in January because of Buffett's complaints that tax laws are too easy on wealthy investors.

At Saturday's Berkshire Hathaway meeting Buffett joked about the fame Debbie Bosanek gained because he says she pays a higher tax rate than he does.

In a video skit, Bosanek started ignoring calls into the Berkshire office. That forced Buffett to start picking up the phone only to find that the callers wanted to reach Bosanek.



Oprah Winfrey, President Barack Obama and CNBC all wanted to talk to Bosanek instead of Buffett. Obama even told Buffett that his tax reform proposal might have a better chance of passing if it were renamed the "Bosanek Rule" instead of the "Buffett Rule."
