Matt Damon says we should tax the rich

A clip of Matt Damon supporting teachers in an argument with a conservative reporter is deservedly making the rounds, but this one has slipped under the radar. A conservative reporter asks Damon if he would support taxing the rich, and then asks what he thinks is a gotcha question about what would happen to job creation if taxes for the rich went up. Damon handles his questions with ease. Watch the video: Maybe this clip escaped notice because it is so utterly noncontroversial. Most Americans, even a majority of Republicans, favor raising taxes on the rich. Well, maybe in conservative circles it's controversial, but back in the real world, people understand that those who do well in America should do right by America.
