(UnitedVoice.com) – Elon Musk employs more than 100,000 people around the world. One of his companies, SpaceX, has made history with its flights and has helped NASA maintain the space program following the end of the Space Shuttle program. While many Americans appreciate the contributions he’s made to the country, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is not among them.
When TIME named Musk Person of the Year in December, Warren was angry. The senator took time out of her busy schedule to rant about the choice on Twitter. She implied the American entrepreneur was freeloading by allegedly not paying his fair share of taxes. The Tesla CEO was quick to hit back. He said the senator didn’t have any idea what she was talking about, revealing his tax bill this year will be the largest in the history of the country.
And if you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year

Musk told his followers he’ll pay the US government $11 billion in taxes in 2021. He went on to joke that Warren should spend all the money in one place, then said, “oh wait you did.”
Warren is one of the loudest voices on the Left about taxing the rich. Instead of working with the business people that have made the country great, she wants to punish their success. Musk won’t allow her to bully him — rightfully so.
