Mr. Buffett, who is chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, has been criticized by Republicans for his suggestion that Congress increase taxes on the “mega-rich,” such as him. Several Republicans suggested Mr. Buffett consider donating money to help the nation balance its books.
Mr. Buffett tells Time that he doesn’t think many Republicans will be willing to take him up on his offer to match their contributions. Mr. Buffett says he’d even triple anything Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell gave.
