Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders blasted Billionaire futurist Elon Musk over his wealth, success in the business world, and plans for privatized space exploration.

Sanders stated that while space travel was ‘exciting’ he believed that the priority should be on creating a ‘progressive’ tax system to reduce the level of inequality.

As Fox News reports:

Monday’s tweet from Sanders continued an exchange of posts from the pair, which appeared to begin when Musk responded to a Sanders tweet from last week that claimed Musk and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owned more wealth than the bottom 40% of Americans, characterizing that level of “greed” and “inequality” as both immoral and unsustainable.

In response, Musk noted that he is “accumulating resources to help make life multiplanetary & extend the light of consciousness to the stars.”

According to Forbes, Musk had a net worth of $170 billion as of Monday.

The publication claims the billionaire businessman gained more wealth than anyone in the world during President Donald Trump’s tenure to roughly $184 billion from $12.9 billion, earning him the title of the second-richest person in the world.

Is Sanders right to attack Musk for his desire to colonize the galaxy and for his success in the business world, or is her merely attempting to once again push a radical socialist agenda on American visionaries like Musk who are attempting to create a better world?

Sanders shouldn’t be talking about taxes or money since he has tons of it himself, and sure he doesn’t pay his, just look at the mansions and cars he has, for doing nothing. Sanders you need to practice what you preach.

In a sense, Bolshevik Bernie IS living in Venezuela. While the rank and file gentry watch their standards of living collapse, the leaders are flying around on luxury jets, rubbing the noses of the proletariat in their wealth while they languish in opulent mansions. Why don’t we ask the tens of thousand of homeless Americans what they think of this guy? Their responses may be revealing…

These two men have created thousands of jobs from nothing. Bernie hasn’t created anything except to get rich off of the American tax Payer. If for some reason Bernie goes missing, nobody would miss him.

Well said. In fact, most of the Democrats or Liberals could mysteriously go missing and America would be better for it.
