Billionaire Bill Gates said recently that, “I don’t feel like people like myself are paying as much [in taxes] as we should.” Actor Chris Rock echoed the argument, saying said he would be fine with paying more. “I’ll pay higher taxes. I look at it this way. I can pay higher taxes and people can have jobs, or I can pay lower taxes and I have my kid’s teacher asking me for a loan, which is true,” Rock told the Associated Press at the Sundance Film Festival.
