Gene Simmons Says The Richest 1% Is What Holds America Together The Most.

by Tommy Fox

Very few people are as unrepentant about their success as GENE SIMMONS , the lead marketer for KISS . And in a new interview, he really drives it home.

He tells the "San Diego Union-Tribune" , quote, "I have been part of the one percent for the past 30 years . . . It's fantastic! The one percent pays 80 percent of all taxes. Fifty percent of the population of the U.S. pays no taxes.

"The one percent provides all the jobs for everybody else. If the one 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."
