Bernie Sanders launches attacks on Bezo and Musk; “The corporate elite seem to love the idea that billionaires have a lower effective tax rate.”


Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders decided to put his opinion on why the $3.5 trillion spending spree bill hasn’t reached an agreement. The target this time? Lobbyists and billionaires who don’t like to spend money on taxes.

Bernie attempted to close in on Telsa CEO Elon Musk and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, stating, “Elon Musk and Jeff Bezo are vigorously opposed to the Democrats’ legislation that would raise the corporate tax rate and hold the wealthiest people accountable for paying their fair share in taxes.” 

It’s important to note that most of Elon’s wealth is tied to vested equity within Tesla. With Elon Musk’s top marginal tax rate being 53% this year. While Jeff Bezos paid $973 million in total taxes on his then-current $4.22 billion income.

This is not the first event of Sen. Sanders’s criticism of the spending bill’s delay. Outright dismissing centrist Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema last week for their denial of the bill. Continuing to attack his party, he called for “Democratic unity,” remaining adamant that “Democrats should not cave to what two members of the party want.” 

Slowly the card house comes falling as more Democrats see the insanity of this bill.
