Buffett mocks Christie for 'write a check and shut up' remark



“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 in an interview on CNBC...
Buffett said Christie’s comments were not “eloquent” and largely parroted a similar call from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
“It’s sort of astounding to me that somebody that has the responsibility for being the minority leader in the Senate would think that you attack a $1.2 trillion or so deficit by asking for voluntary contributions,” Buffett said.

1. I have a better idea for Buffet

Write a check indeed:

for $500 million to Obama's SuperPAC Priorities USA.

The Koch brothers will not be able to win a spending contest with Buffet.
