Buffett brushes off Gov. Christie comment as 'touching response' to debt crisis

“It’s sort of a touching response to a $1.2 trillion deficit, isn’t it? That somehow the American people will all send in checks and take care of it?” Buffett said.

Christie made headlines when he told CNN last week that Buffett should just write a check to the government rather than advocating for tax reforms that would increase the burden on the wealthiest of Americans.

“He should just write a check and shut up,” Christie said. “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.”
