Willie Nelson: It’s time for the rich to pay up
Country music legend Willie Nelson said Wednesday that he is “proud” of the Occupy movement.
“Once the people have had enough, they start speaking and they’ll start doing what they’re doing,” Nelson told KSAT’s Paul Venema. “I’m proud of them for doing it.”
“I pay my taxes and some of those guys up there [on Wall Street] don’t,” he noted. “And those are the ones that I’m pissed off at, the ones that make millions of dollars a year and don’t pay any taxes.”
Nelson said he was also enjoying watching the Republican presidential debates.
“It’s the best thing on TV, watching those guys scramble and try to clean up what they screw up,” he observed with a chuckle.
