Christie: Buffett Write a Check, 'Shut Up' - Bloomberg

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said billionaire investor Warren Buffett, who called for the nation's wealthiest people to pay more taxes, should "just write a check and shut up."

"I'm tired of hearing about it," Christie told CNN's Piers Morgan in an interview that aired last night. "If he wants to give the government more money, he's got the ability to write a check. Go ahead and write it."

Christie, a 49-year-old first-term Republican known for a blunt and caustic style, has proposed a 10 percent income-tax cut for every New Jersey resident. Democrats who control the Legislature say his plan would favor the rich. A family with a $50,000 annual income would pay $80 less under his plan, while someone earning $1 million would save $7,200, Democrats say.
