We should feel sorry for Elon Musk. Because - oh no - the richest man in the world might have to start paying decent taxes. And the richest man in the world doesn't like that. So he reacts on Twitter like a hot-tempered child who doesn't get his pacifier.
This week it is US Senator Bernie Sanders who has to pay the price. Sanders is one of the most progressive politicians in the United States and wants the super rich to finally start paying normal taxes. He wrote on Twitter: "We must demand that the extremely rich pay their fair share. Period."
Tesla boss Elon Musk - again: the richest man in the world - would rather not pay taxes, so he sneered at Sanders: "I keep forgetting that you are still alive." on a tax tweet from US Senator Ron Wyden Musk responded with, "Why does your profile picture look like you just came?"
Yep ... that's the richest man in the world, who has a net worth of more than 280 billion dollars. And to put that into perspective, the Czech Republic has a gross domestic product (GDP) of USD 276 billion, Portugal comes to USD 257 billion, and in New Zealand they all rake in USD 243 billion.
Musk can pay some taxes, even if he doesn't feel like it at all. Our problem with the Tesla CEO is not only that he is an insufferable whiner, but also that he is a hypocrite. He doesn't want to pay taxes, but he really wants to receive tax money.
Eleven years ago, Tesla got a loan from the US government to start up. The company has since paid back that $465 million - with an extremely low interest rate - but still ... it was public money. In addition, Tesla benefits from huge tax breaks, for example by setting up a factory in Austin, Texas.
Furthermore, Tesla received corona support last year and the brand's electric cars are so popular in the United States because they are subsidized. With government money. In addition, Musk's other companies - The Boring Company, SpaceX and Solar City - are largely dependent on government orders, which - of course - involve taxpayers' money.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk - the richest man in the world - likes to hold out his hand for taxpayers' money in the form of loans, aid packages and subsidies, but behaves - boo !! - like a grumpy toddler when he has to pay taxes. In short, he is a hypocritical bastard.
