Warren Buffett Calls Republicans’ Bluff
Mitch McConnell suggested Buffett write a check to the government if he feels so guilty about not paying enough. Buffett’s done him one better.
“It restores my faith in human nature to think that there are people who have been around Washington all this time and are not yet so cynical as to think that [the deficit] can’t be solved by voluntary contributions,” he says with a chuckle. So Buffett has pledged to match 1 for 1 all such voluntary contributions made by Republican members of Congress. “And I’ll even go 3 for 1 for McConnell,” he says. That could be quite a bill if McConnell takes the challenge; after all, the Senator is worth at least $10 million.Click here for reuse options!
