Warren Buffet is a known supporter of the Death Tax [1], a long-time Democrat [2], was an unofficial adviser on economic policy to President Obama during the 2008 campaign and he recently served on the President’s  Economic Advisory Board during the transition between presidential administrations [3]. Oh, and he revealed this morning that he also opposes ending secret ballots for union organizing elections:

As scholars here at Heritage have chronicled [4], the bill has been a top priority of Big Labor for years.  The bill’s intent is to strip away worker’s ability to have secret ballot elections for the purpose of deciding whether to organize a labor union or not.

“I think the secret ballot’s pretty important in the country,” said Buffet. “I’m against card check to make a perfectly flat statement.”
