(Washington Fee Beacon) -- Kiss’ iconic “Demon” Gene Simmons is a member of the 1 percent, and he makes no apologies.
In an interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune, the founder and bassist for the legendary hard rock band proudly proclaimed himself a member of the richest 1 percent in America and went on to say that America would “be in chaos” without the rich:
"The 1 percent pays 80 percent of all taxes. Fifty percent of the population of the U.S. pays no taxes. The 1 percent provides all the jobs for everybody else. If the 1 percent didn’t exist, there would be chaos and the American economy would drop dead. Try being nice to rich people. I don’t remember the last poor person who gave me a job."
