While discussing the issue of tax reform Chris Christie reiterated his comment that billionaire investor Warren Buffett should, "write a check."
The New Jersey Governor made the comments on "Fox and Friends" on Thursday morning.
"The democrats just trot Warren Buffett out any time they want to make a point about raising taxes on the American people which they are insatiable about doing," said the Republican. "I don't mean to be disrespectful I just tell it as I see it."
"You've got tens of billions of dollars. If you trust Barack Obama with that money write a check and contribute," Christie added.
Christie initially made this comment on CNN Tuesday saying Buffett should, "write a check and shut up."
President Obama used Warren Buffet as a platform to create the Buffett Rule in 2011 which seeks to tax the 1 percent of Americans or individuals earning more than $1 million per year in hopes of alleviating income inequality.
"He simply believes, as one of the wealthiest men in the world, that he should not be paying an effective tax rate lower than his secretary," White House press secretary Jay Carney said about Warren Buffett at a briefing Wednesday. "I don't know why the governor mentioned or others think that's a bad idea, but this President believes it's the right approach."
Carney also called Christie's comments a "quip" that tries to draw attention away from the need for a new tax code. "Quips aside, we think the Buffett Rule is absolutely an important principle to apply to individual tax reform."
"I've never been called a quipster," Christie joked in response to Carney. "It's just a ridiculous comment to say."
