In an interview with Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffet on Tuesday's NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer was puzzled by GOP opposition to the billionaire investors call for higher taxes: "One of the ideas being pushed out there by the Right is that if you raise taxes on the wealthy it will have a chilling effect on hiring and investment in this country....Why do you think Republicans are clinging so tightly to that idea?" Buffet replied: "Well, I think they're worried about primaries next time, but I think you're seeing people peel away from that."
