“Men in Black” star Will Smith backs higher taxes…until he hears France’s proposed rate! Rob Houglum LLMedia Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Will Smith has been a vocal fan of Barack Obama and his plan to extend taxes on the welathy, but during a visit to France he was asked if he would support a seventy five percent tax level precisely what's being suggested by new Socialist President of France.
Business Insider explains, "The Hollywood megastar enthusiastically preached the gospel of paying one's fair share of taxes in a French television interview this weekend."
"But when asked questions about his viewpoint on the tax policy of French president-elect Franois Hollande, Smith's was surprised mad by the suggestion of a seventy five % tax level on those earning above 1,000,000 annually," reported BI's Alex Biles.
"I have no difficulty with Will Smith," Glenn declared at the start of the video.
Glenn explained that Smith shares the same opinion as many in Hollywood the rich have to pay more in taxes.
During the interview, Smith replies with a "God Bless America" and a laugh on hearing President-elect Hollande's proposed rate of 75 percent.
"You can see the actual shock of that number," Stu said. "( Smith ) isn't a tax expert in EU economics. It strikes him as shocking as it should strike you."
