Appearing at an "Awake the State" rally in Sarasota, Florida, the bestselling horror author took on a real life horror show, Republican governors and their attack on union workers.
You know what, as a rich person, I pay 28% tax. What I want to ask you is, why is it I'm not paying 50? Why is it that anybody in my bracket is not paying 50? You know, the Republicans will tell you - from John Boehner to Mitch McConnell to Rick Scott - "we can't do that"because if we tax guys like me, there won't be any jobs.
It's bull. It's total bull. Don't you think it would make a dent in the problems that Florida has if Rick Scott matched the amount he spent to get elected and stuck that right in the budget?
If you like your weekends (off), thank a union guy. If you like a 40 hour week, thank a union guy. If you like a day's honest pay for a day's honest work, thank a union guy."
