Actor John Leguizamo: Big Fan of Big Government
Actor John Leguizamo refuses to employ any cagey politically-correct-speak about his love for big government. There's no dancing around or soft-pedaling with him. For Leguizamo, big government is all good.
In a recent interview with Nicholas Ballasy, the actor asked "What’s wrong with big government?"
"I’ve never had a problem with big government. I’ve felt our country’s always done best during Eisenhower, FDR, when we had we had big government … We’re not in a fascist state, so what’s the problem with big government? It’s not a problem. It makes things better," the actor said.
Leguizamo also went on to push for more regulation on Wall Street and claimed that there needs to be more government funding "in the arts."
He also seemed to have no problem paying even more taxes than he now does.
"I think with the taxing the rich now that’s finally happening now which we need to do – I mean, back in the 50's and 60's, if you made money you paid like 70 percent in taxes or even higher than that, and that’s when we started booming and creating a middle class," he said.
