Academy award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore told The Daily Caller in an exclusive interview that he wants the United States to enact a 50 percent tax rate for America’s highest-earning taxpayers, but would not donate to the U.S. Treasury himself.

Moore did not deny reports that his net worth exceeds $50 million, but stressed that he uses his money, which he called a “private matter,” to attack the GOP’s position on lower taxes. He told TheDC at Washington, D.C.’s Union Station on Thursday that he does not credit capitalism for his commercial success in the film industry, saying that “socialist countries” have movies too.

Asked by TheDC if he would like to move to another country, given his anti-capitalist leanings, Moore said, “I’m not leaving.”
