Billionaire Warren Buffett may be the poster child for President Obama's tax plan, but the investment tycoon insists he is not a "card-carrying Democrat."
"I support certain Republicans," Buffet told members of Washington, D.C.'s Economic Club Tuesday night. "Actually this year I gave money to a Republican congressman."
While Buffett didn't name the recipient of his rare cross-party donation, Federal Election Commission data shows that Virginia Rep. Scott Rigell was the lucky beneficiary.
Buffett gave Rigell the maximum legal campaign donation of $2,500, although that's substantially less than the $70,000 he has given to help re-elect President Obama over the past two years.
Buffett, who was in Washington for his 65 th high school reunion, joked that having a tax named after him was not his first choice for a namesake.
President Obama dubbed his plan to institute a minimum 30 percent tax rate on millionaires the "Buffett Rule" after the billionaire lamented that his secretary paid a higher tax rate than he does.
"I couldn't get a disease named after me so I settled for a tax," Buffett joked.

He’s a card carrying socialist, just like his buddy George Soros.
The rats are leaving the sinking ship...
We need to make sure they don’t swim over to our ship.
Buffet is a Card-carrying Buffet.
He supports WHATEVER is best for Warren, including the imposition of heinous taxation on the middle and upper productive classes.
“Buffett, who was in Washington for his 65 th high school reunion”
That can’t be right. They must mean his 65-year reunion.
I’m sure he sent some donations to Arlen Specter when he masqueraded as a Republican . . . and Lincoln Chaffee . . .
Bravo Sierra. Warren Buffett is a crony capitalist = Donkey = socialist = Marxist. He is a liar and deceiver without any socially redeeming values or virtues.
