Billionaire Warren Buffett goes after Chris Christie: 'What we need is a tax policy'

Billionaire Warren Buffett goes after Chris Christie: 'What we need is a tax policy'

A war of words is erupting between billionaire investor Warren Buffett and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie who told "The Oracle of Omaha" last week to just "shut up and write a check."

The feisty Berkshire Hathaway CEO struck back Monday in an hour-long CNBC interview by acrimoniously saying, “It’s sort of a touching response to a $1.2 trillion deficit, isn’t it? That somehow the American people will just all send in checks and take care of it?"

Christie lashed-out at Buffett for what’s been described as the “Buffett Rule," an idea that suggests those earning more than $1 million annually pay at least the same rate in taxes as those from middle-class households.

“He should just write a check and shut up,” the Republican Governor said on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight”, “Really, and just contribute. The fact of the matter is that I’m tired of hearing about it. If he wants to give the government more money, he’s got the ability to write a check, go ahead and write it.”
