(Newser) – President Obama has another high-profile backer of his call for higher taxes on the wealthy: Will Smith. "I'm very supportive of that idea," Smith told the AP while promoting Men in Black III, for which he earned an estimated $20 million. "America has been fantastic to me. I have no problem paying whatever I need to pay to keep my country growing."
