Meh. Even if they paid taxes, they’d still have more than enough to go to space, which makes the absurdity that they don’t pay more in taxes even worse.


It boggles the mind that no one debates screwing over everyday people but taxing people with more money than god is controversial. There are so many more of us than them. Why are we allowing this at all? If your representative won’t make changes then vote them out. I don’t care what side of the political fence you’re on. No one, anywhere should side with these fuckers and their mountain of money. Edit: spelling


She’s not wrong.


Bezos actually does pay taxes on the money he spends on Blue Origin. He funds it by selling Amazon stock, so he pays capital gains.


They would still have enough to shoot themselves into space *even if* they paid taxes.
