Who are the actual freeloaders?

To The Eagle:

Senator Elizabeth Warren tweeted on Elon Musk: “Let’s change the rigged tax so The Person of the Year will actually pay taxes and stop freeloading off everyone else,” in which Elon responded “If you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you will realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year. Don’t spend it all at once. Oh wait, you did already.”

Not knowing who Elon Musk is, I reckoned I should read up on him. His income is estimated around $270 billion. I’m trying to grasp inside my head having an income in the billions of dollars. I wrote down my income of five zeros and compare to his income of 12 zeros; downright mind-boggling funny picture.

He’s quite the entrepreneur; co-founder of Tesla, SpaceX, Neuralink and The Boring Co. I’m no fan of electric cars but the more I read about him, as a billionaire he seems like a down to earth type of guy.

He paid his taxes of over $11 billion. $11 billion! Immediately, my thoughts were if all the billionaires in the US like Elon, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Jeff Bezos pay billions of dollars in taxes, I sure as hell’s bells would like to know where did it go? I know it goes to the Treasury but from there where does it go? How is it spent? We are way in debt and the White House is trying to pass a $2.1 trillion proposal to build back a better package that they say it’s for but you know very well they’ll spend it on something not beneficial for us and our country. You wonder who the real culprit in “freeloading off everyone else” is.
