Jeb Bush Blasts Moore's 'Tax Break' Comment

Florida Governor JEB BUSH has lashed out at director MICHAEL MOORE's claims he gives tax breaks to the DISNEY company for creating so many jobs in the Sunshine state.

Moore's anti-President GEORGE W BUSH film FAHRENHEIT 9/11 is seeking a distributor following Disney's decision to ban its MIRAMAX division from showing the controversial film.

The OSCAR-winning director retaliated on his official website, claiming the reason Disney refuses to release the movie is because "it might 'endanger' millions of dollars of tax breaks Disney receives from the state of Florida because the film will 'anger' the Governor of Florida, Jeb Bush".

However, the politician fumes, "What tax break? We don't give tax breaks, that I'm aware of, to Disney.

"I appreciate the fact that Disney creates thousands and thousands of jobs in our state."
