He has a message for the far-left.
Recently, Senator Elizabeth Warren along with a long list of far-left Democrats such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez have been demanding that billionaires such as Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos pay more in taxes. They believe these billionaires should pay their “fair share” so that America could prosper with the additional income.
Now according to CNBC, Elon Musk has fired back at progressive Democrats and openly admitted that he is going be paying the astounding sum of $11 billion dollars this year in taxes alone.
The Tesla CEO took to Twitter and wrote, “For those wondering, I will pay over $11 billion in taxes this year.”

This isn’t the first time Musk has been surrounded by controversy. Recently he referred to Elizabeth Warren as “Senator Karen” mocking her as a middle aged female who complains too much. He also told Senator Bernie Sanders and he keeps forgetting that “he is still alive.”
Currently, Musk’s wealthy stands somewhere around $243 billion and is still growing. If Telsa continues to sell high end electric vehicles he will likely come under even more pressure from the Democrats to pay even more in taxes.
