Obama called Warren Buffett to wish him well
White House says Obama called Warren Buffett after investor said he has prostate cancer
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' The White House says President Barack Obama has called Nebraska billionaire investor Warren Buffett, a day after Buffett said he had been diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer.

White House press secretary Jay Carney says the president spoke briefly with Buffett and "wished him well." Buffett told shareholders in a letter released late Tuesday that his condition is "not remotely life-threatening."

Obama has called his proposal to raise taxes on millionaires the "Buffett rule." Buffett has complained that he pays a lower tax rate than his secretary, a problem he says is indicative of a lack of fairness in the tax code.
