Warren Buffett told CNBC today that Congress is playing a "silly" game of "Russian Roulette" by threatening not to raise the nation's debt limit as it debates deficit reduction. In a live interview on Squawk Box from Sun Valley, Idaho, where he's attending the annual Allen & Co. media conference, Buffett warned of "enormous disruption" if there's no deal to raise the U.S. debt limit. Buffett told Becky Quick that the country's bills will be paid one way or the other, and Congress should address the situation with "maturity." [CNBC]
