(CNSNews.com) - Star Wars director George Lucas
"fully supports President Obama's approach to the current economic
problem” and thinks that the salaries of bailed-out bank executives
should be capped, according to his spokesperson, who added that
Lucas also thinks "rich" people should pay higher tax rates than
people who are not rich.
Lucas endorsed Obama’s economic approach through
his spokesperson after being interviewed by CNSNews.com about
the issue at the Ford’s Theater re-opening ceremony on Feb. 11.
Spokesperson Lynne Hale said that some news outlets had “misquoted
or quoted out of context” the comments made by Lucas at the time.
