Jay-Z's Willing To Part With His $$$ If Goes Towards Something Positive.

| Filed under: PolitikJay Z

Listen up, 1%! One of your own is willing to pay more taxes than the rest of the country.

He has some requests though!

Showcasing a really stellar attitude in a recent interview, Jay-Z told CNN that he would be fine with having his taxes raised in order to benefit the country at large, but only if he could see his money going to good use. In his interview (above), he insists that an increase to his taxes would have to mean his money would be going to underfunded yet essential elements of our country, like education and helping the poverty-stricken.

Sounds like a sound argument to us.

Check out the video (above) to hear Jay speak more on his ideas.

    Um pause! Keep dreaming! I would love to have some say into where my tax paying monies go too! You know especially since its basically HALF my paycheck everyweek. But our government wastes wastes wastes.

    do I get a say in where my taxes go no so why should he?

    Sounds like a pretty safe argument too! Who is to say who deserves what more? A really safe way for a leech hack like Jay z to do what most celebs do and thats score point off of a real crisis without actually having to do or spend anything. I see rite thru u Jay Zzzzzzzzzz

    So why doesn't he do the Warren Buffet thing and give 1/2 of his money to charity? If he does it himself, then he is in control of where it goes.
    Re: Truth_Is_A-Virus – I tend to agree.

    None of us get to decide where the money we have to fork over goes to. I pay almost 60% of my wages to taxes between city, state, federal, social security, Medicare & medicade. How much more should I pay to support the losers who do not want to work and only want to sit with their hands out for their "entitlements"?

    A sound argument? Do you not think every rich person would love to choose where their taxes go. Most rich people don't trust obama with their money. Another celebrity talking shit knowing full well he won't have to back it up. This is pathetic. Just give money to the charity of your choice.

    He'd be better off paying into his own charitable initiative and cut out 90% of the money sucking middlemen. Bigger tax dollars at this point would only serve to inflate and feed an already fat and bloated bureaucracy.

    He's just jumping on the band wagon just like all the celebrities, including Perez, did with Obama. Just shut the hell up already! Believe what you wanna believe but I don't need to hear about it!

    I'd bet Jay-Z could accomplish a lot for these disenfranchised groups of people on his own if he set his mind to it. He knows how to make things happen.

    Re: rosebud99 – That's a great idea, hope he reads it & acts on it.
