Elon Musk has always been the billionaire who has been vocal about people advising him that the super-rich should be taxed. And now he just likes making nasty remarks when well-known people, such as the US Senator, bring the subject up on Twitter. It’s safe to assume he’s tweeting from the luxury of his $50,000 South Texas house.

Bernie Sanders, expressing his conviction, tweeted on the need to tax the ultra-wealthy.

On Twitter, Bernie Sanders has almost 12 million followers.

Elon Musk, as a member of the super-rich, chose to be clever.

The man has a following of 64 million people, and this isn’t the first time he’s trolled them. His most recent actions, however, offended a large number of people.

Yes, since Elon Musk is one of the wealthiest people on the planet, and many people feel he could accomplish even more.

In fact, the two have a common goal of making renewable energy a source of income. The Tesla CEO, on the other hand, has long been opposed to the concept of a “billionaire’s income tax.” The man has a net worth of $285 billion, with Jeff Bezos coming in second with $203.9 billion.

“OK, how much do you think is fair?” he teased afterwards. “Doesn’t 53% sound reasonable?”

People thought his juvenile remarks were impolite to the Senator, who was well-liked by the public.

He returned while his original tweet was still going strong, asking if he should “sell more stock.”

Elon Musk recently sold $6.9 billion in stock and was questioned if “53 percent” was enough. While the Senate never responded to tweets, Elon used his tweet to connect with others, answering questions and offering his thoughts.

“Eventually, they run out of other people’s money, and then they come for you,” he previously tweeted.

Which is food for thought, given that the system has long been funded by a tax structure that has resulted in a large number of people living in poverty, homelessness, and on a paycheck-to-paycheck basis.

“I’m in favour of an estate tax,” one responded.

“What do you think of a tax structure with only a sales tax?” a user inquired.

“So that high-income families who buy a lot of items pay the most in taxes, while low-income people who don’t buy anything pay the least.” This would penalise frivolous purchases rather than capital accumulation.”

“Agreed, taxes are best applied to (particularly lavish) spending, whereas capital allocation taxes limit goods and services output, so actually harmful for the people,” the CEO responded.

“I am in favour of an estate tax since the likely capital allocation skill of heirs is lower than that of the original inventor.”

California’s gross tax income was estimated to be in excess of $400 billion. Is it possible to ‘repair’ things by taxing billionaires?

Some people saw his tweet as a model for their own trolls.

While others raised the issue of other harmful practises found in many prominent organisations in a low-key manner.

Those who oppose the “billionaire’s income tax” explain why it is unjust.
