Stephen King Wants to Pay Higher Taxes

Stephen King calls the new Maine governor, Paul LePage, a "stone brain," and makes him part of a "Three Stooges" of governors as he makes a plea for higher taxes for the rich.

You might say, “Hey, what are you doing up there, aren’t you rich?” The answer is, “Thank God, yes.” And you know what, as a rich person, I pay 28 percent tax. What I want to ask you is why am I not paying fifty. Why is everybody in my bracket not paying fifty?

A resident of Sarasota, King said maybe he should write his next horror novel about (Florida Governor) Rick Scott. He told the crowd the rich ought to pay more taxes.

King was speaking at the "Awake the State" rally in Sarasota last week.
