Filmmaker Moore: Return to Pre-Reagan Tax Policy

Friday, 13 Jan 2012 11:39 AM

Liberal activist filmmaker Michael Moore supports a pre-Ronald Reagan tax policy, with those earning at least $250,000 paying 39 percent, and top earners paying 50 percent in taxes, he told DailyCaller.com in a video interview.

The Daily Caller asked Moore, who did not deny reports that he is worth $50 million or more, how much money he would be willing to fork over if pending legislation passes allowing wealthy taxpayers to donate to the U.S. Treasury on tax forms.

“What I’ve been doing since I’ve been a beneficiary of the Bush tax cut is spending as much of that money as I can to defeat Republicans and anybody who supports the Bush tax cuts,” Moore answered. “So that’s what I do with it, in the hopes that I can advocate to get these taxes raised.”

When Daily Caller asked Moore if he credits capitalism for his success, he said, “I credit the tens of millions of people who buy a ticket to go to my movies. By the way, I think they have movies in socialist countries. … And so because I’m blessed, because I get a small percentage of that, I have a responsibility to keep making these movies and keep doing what I do to try and make things better for everybody.”
