VIDEO: Jay-Z Speaks on Occupy, Paying Higher Taxes with CNN
When Jay-Z recently sat down for an interview with CNN Money, the conversation turned to the question of raising taxes on the wealthiest 1%of Americans (a group of which Jay-Z is most definitely a member).
And while Jay thinks the actual destination of his money needs to be more transparently conveyed by the Government, Hov doesn’t seem to have too much of a problem sharing a bit more of his riches so sick people can receive health care and little kids can eat dinner after school.
“‘I wouldn’t mind paying more taxes if it went to the things that really mattered. If it went to education, people [in] poverty and if it went to the right things,’ Jay-Z, whose net worth has been estimated near a half billion dollars, said on CNN. ‘It should be clearly defined … where all the money’s being allocated. Because you can understand paying so much for taxes and then things not improving, you’re like, where’s everything going to?’”
