Elon Musk Slams President Joe Biden’s Proposed Wealth Tax for Billionaires and Says it Would Upset Billionaire Donors
Elon Musk slammed the proposed wealth tax of President Joe Biden that will leave billionaires in the country with a minimum tax of 25% as a fair share despite continuously giving billions of donations to several parties, which will probably upset lots of them.
According to reports from Yahoo News, billionaires already spent more than $2.3 billion during the 2020 election, leading to Musk claiming that the administration is only coming for their money with the wealth tax despite receiving funding from their wallets.
Before the current wealth tax proposal, the Biden administration had already introduced a tax plan that would have left Musk paying a tax bill of approximately $10 billion yearly, claiming that the big amount would not hurt billionaires.
