Damon also said those making over $250,000 per year are not job creators. "Nobody went and started a business with their Bush tax cut. You know, I don't know who would believe something – that just defies common sense so no, that's – no. I was against those tax cuts. I thought they were ridiculous. So little is asked of the upper class anyway, you know. I mean, what percent of them or their kids are fighting in any of these wars?" he said.

What does he think is the income level of the small business owners, the people who run the dry cleaners, the restaurants, the auto repair shops? They are the ones in the middle, with enough income to be hit hard by taxes, but not enough to be able to take advantage of many loopholes.

The only thing he knows is that he pulls in $24 million per year. Ask him how many jobs his production company (LivePlanet) created and I'm sure he'll talk out of the other side of his mouth.

The majority of those making $250,000 file as Sub Chapter S. Those are the small business where most of America works.
