Bruce Willis Blasts French Socialism
Maybe Bruce Willis is the man to unite divided Republicans.
As rising GOP stars Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Rand Paul prepare to deliver competing, stereophonic versions of the fissile party’s response to President Obama’s State of the Union message Tuesday night, Mr. Willis continues to speak out in mono, on message, in a language common to all Republicans.
In France on Monday to be honored with that nation’s Commander of the Arts award, the wisecracking star of the Die Hard films took a very public swing at Socialist President Francois Hollande’s controversial 75 percent “millionaire’s tax.”
The internationally popular superstar, born on a U.S. air base in Germany, told the Paris gathering that “he “feels at home” in France, according to the Associated Press, but that he opposes the Socialist government’s 75 percent tax rate on incomes over $1.32 million and “hopes he would be able to complain about it if he lived in France.”
