Video- Chris Christie Tells Piers Morgan That Warren Buffett 'Should Write A Check And Shut Up'

By Susan Duclos

Chris Christie has a message for Warren Buffett via the Piers Morgan show after Morgan brought up Buffett's name in the tax conversation where Christie responded with "He should just write a check and shut up. 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."

Buffett often says that he and other rich people should be paying more than they pay now and those that agree with him can, indeed, send as much as they wish to the IRS/ government.

Via the Treasury website:

Citizens who wish to make a general donation to the U.S. government may send contributions to a specific account called "Gifts to the United States." This account was established in 1843 to accept gifts, such as bequests, from individuals wishing to express their patriotism to the United States. Money deposited into this account is for general use by the federal government and can be available for budget needs. These contributions are considered an unconditional gift to the government. Financial gifts can be made by check or money order payable to the United States Treasury and mailed to the address below.
