Warren Rips Elon Musk: He ‘Didn’t Make It on His Own,’ He Got Huge Investments from Taxpayers

‘I’m happy to celebrate success’
By Grabien Staff


WARREN: "So, look, I’m happy to celebrate success, but let’s remember Elon Musk didn’t make it on his own. He got huge investments from the government, from taxpayers, from those public schoolteachers and those minimum wage workers who have been paying their taxes all along to get that business up and running and help see it through rough times. And the thing is, as Americans we’re glad to help make those investments. We’re glad to all have a hand in helping create all of those jobs. All we’re saying is, when you make it to the top, to the very tippy-tippy top, then pay something in so everybody else gets a share. Elon Musk paying this year, that’s great, because he chose to sell some stock. 2018, also one of the richest people in the world. How much did Elon Musk pay that year? We actually saw his taxes that year, and the answer is he paid zero."
