New York (CNNMoney) - Outspoken New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie had some rather harsh words for billionaire investor Warren Buffett on Tuesday.
During a discussion with CNN's Piers Morgan about tax rates, Christie made it known that he's just about had it with Buffett, the world-famous investor who lent his name to a proposed tax hike on the rich.

Christi having a problem dealing with a rich, successful, fair and compassionate man?
Republicans want Buffett to shut up. I am so surprised. They do not want an extremely rich man who states the simple fact that paying a fair share is a decnt idea.
Christie's crap attitude is the reason government by republicans does not work. Even the most delusional right wingnuts know that the tax system is broken. When workers pay at a rate 28% and some prominent republican candidates for president pay 13.9%, you can't just 'shut up.' For Christie to suggest that people who feel that the current system is not fair, should volunteer to send in more, may be a republican solution to protect the wealthy, but does not address the problem.
Chris Christie is one very RUDE man!
This is not about Warren Buffett. It is about that the "rich" should pay a fair share and obviously Gov. Christie feels they already do. Most people think they do not!
President Obama 2012!!!
Aint that a shame its a billionaire to blame. Poor Kristy does anyone make a fifty gallon baby bottle for him to hold so he doesnt look out of proportion. Maybe if the GOP would get with it you and make the right decisions someone might vote for you. GOP continues to follow old out dated economic policies that dont work. Open your eyes and look at who highers the most of American workers, thats right small business. Thats because you greedy bastards dont want to pay for American pride. Your main goal is to see how much Americans can kill themselves to make your pockets fatter. I dont see your Chinese workers running to America to save your billionaires for $3.00 an hour pay. Oh darn I forgot you have the Mexicans and Guadamallens to do that $3.00 an hour work for you. I vote for America the GOP vote is for China.
Do New Jersey taxpayers have to foot the bill for the governor's food? If they could auction off those extra meals they could eliminate the state income tax.
Dear Mr. Buffet,
If you feel that you are not paying enough taxes, please feel free to remit any additional funds you deem appropriate for your income level, We will accept these monies with gratitude.
Timothy Geitjner, Treasury Secretary
