Michael Moore: How about a top bracket of 50%?

Moore did not deny reports that his net worth exceeds $50 million, but stressed that he uses his money, which he called a “private matter,” to attack the GOP’s position on lower taxes. He told TheDC at Washington, D.C.’s Union Station on Thursday that he does not credit capitalism for his commercial success in the film industry, saying that “socialist countries” have movies too…

After he told TheDC that he wants a 39 percent tax rate for individuals making over $250,000 per year — and a 50 percent rate “for the upper income [earners] — Moore was asked how much he would personally donate to the Treasury to pay down the national debt.

“Everybody has to do it,” he insisted. “There’s no such thing as, the federal government’s not a charity. We’re all in this together. We all have to pay our fair share and we all have to do it at the same time. There’s no opt-in or opt-out.”
