BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: One other note from today, President Obama today made mention of an op-ed article getting a lot of attention. The billionaire Warren Buffett made the case in today's New York Times , the same case he's made to us here in the past, saying in effect that he's not being asked to pay enough in taxes. Buffet wrote in part, "My friends and I have been coddled long enough by a billionaire-friendly Congress . It's time for our government to get serious about shared sacrifice." We've linked, by the way, to the entire article on our Web site tonight.
