Stephen King: Tax Me, for F@%&’s Sake!

In an interview with The Daily Beast writer Stephen King scolds the superrich with great vengeance and furious anger.

Most rich folks like to keep their dough. They don’t strip their bank accounts and investment portfolios. They keep them and then pass them on to their children, their children’s children. (…)

(…) Here’s another crock of fresh bullshit delivered by the right wing of the Republican Party (…): the richer rich people get, the more jobs they create. Really? I have a total payroll of about 60 people, most of them working for the two radio stations I own in Bangor, Maine. If I hit the movie jackpot—as I have, from time to time—and own a piece of a film that grosses $200 million, what am I going to do with it? Buy another radio station? I don’t think so, since I’m losing my shirt on the ones I own already. But suppose I did, and hired on an additional dozen folks. Good for them. Whoopee-ding for the rest of the economy.

I guess we don’t have rich people around here who will be willing to take the same approach.
