I don’t know, but I expect the wealthy to write a check ’cause it’s as bad as it’s ever been. It would be unpatriotic not to try to save the country. I’m sure people will bitch about it, but if it meant we get to operate in this country and live here another day, then so be it.

One way or another, before it’s over they’re gonna have to come and take big money from the earners and big corporations to save the country. I’m sure that everybody that has a patriotic cell in their system will say, ‘If it’s gotta be done, it’s gotta be done.’ I’d rather live here and not have as much money than live anywhere else and have twice as much.

Toby Keith, on taxing the rich and corporations.

Yes, that Toby Keith who wrote the “We’re gonna put a boot in your ass” song and who you would assume is a Republican through and through.

He’s a Democrat.

Maybe if he puts this in a catchy song, the red states will take notice, along with their congressmen. I might just play Toby Keith on my radio show if he were to do that.

Somehow, I’d forgotten he was a Democrat… Write that song, Toby Keith. I’ll play it in Wyoming.
