Craig T nelson has not always been linked with many controversies but his speculated reply in the Fox news back in 2009 has stirred up the news aisles and raised some eyebrows. His remarks on the state of California and his refusal to pay Taxes to the state had a lot of people talking about him. He further called for a “Tax Revolt” in 2010 and was seen commenting quite often on the political aspects. When he was asked about the America’s political mood, he was heard quoting a line from the movie Network “We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore”.
