Stephen King Goes Cujo On The Rich For Complaining About Taxes: ‘Tough Sh*t’

“Tough shit for you guys, because I’m not tired of talking about it,” King wrote. “I’ve known rich people, and why not, since I’m one of them?

King scolded Mitt Romney‘s “I’m rich and I don’t apologize for it” attitude.

“I don’t want you to apologize for being rich,” King acknowledged. “I want you to acknowledge that in America, we all should have to pay our fair share.

“It’s not fair to ask the middle class to assume a disproportionate amount of the tax burden,” he continued. “Not fair? It’s un-fucking-American is what it is.”

King saved most of his vitriol for Republicans’ rhetoric that Democrats were hurting “job creators”:
