It's not every day I can tie in kittens with Occupy-related news, but this new video from Moveon.org lets me do just that:

President Obama's Buffett Rule would require millionaires and billionaires to pay the same tax rate as the rest of us.

The Romney Rule lets fat cats rig the system, so they pay less and pass on the burden to hardworking Americans like you and me.

When the wealthiest 1% pay a fair tax rate like the rest of us, it keeps the American Dream alive for everyone. So tell Mitt Romney, kittens are cute. 1% fat cats who won't pay their fair share, eh, not so much.

The Buffet Rule is headed for a vote in the Senate today, where it's expected to die "quickly and quietly." If the bill is killed in the senate, don't anticipate any of us not among the wealthy ruling class to be quiet about it.

Can you help us out?
