Michael Moore’s latest film, Capitalism: A Love Story – which bashes taxpayer bailouts of big Wall Street companies – was itself the recipient of taxpayer subsidies from the state of Michigan, the Mackinac center reports. Moore previously bashed the film tax credit program, calling it a handout for big Hollywood production companies.
I guess it is only objectionable when taxpayers are forced to subsidize other rich fat cats.
More from the Mackinac Center of the failure of film tax credits. You can also check out our recent report on Pennsylvania’s film tax credit, and a recent Tax Foundation analysis of film subsidies across the country.
