Chris Christie, New Jersey's Republican Governor, says Warren Buffett should "just write a check and shut up" on his call for higher tax rates on the super-rich.
On CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, Christie was asked if his proposed 10 percent income tax cut for all New Jersey residents would also apply to the state's billionaires.
MORGAN: Warren Buffett keeps screaming to be taxed more.
CHRISTIE: Yeah, well, he should just write a check and shut up. (Morgan laughs) Really, and just contribute, OK? You know, 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.
