We, Democrats, Joe Biden, Social Media, Big Tech, Billionaire

The wealthiest people in the United States do not seem to be very keen on Joe Biden’s plans to tax the rich, and the boiling tensions between tech and Democrats have shaken the long-standing alliance between Silicon Valley and the US left. There is.

The Joe Biden administration has traditionally been left-winged by many, including Tesla founder Elon Musk, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and many other engineers complaining to the Democratic Party. It seems to be unattractive among millionaires in the field they are doing.

“Split and hatred”

Recently, Musk announced that he would vote for the Republican Party in the next election after being fascinated by the Democratic Party.

“In the past I voted for the Democrats because they were (almost) kind parties,” Musk tweeted Wednesday. “But they have become a party of division and hatred, so I can no longer support them and will vote for the Republicans.”

He is not the only one to criticize the Joe Biden administration, which is driving an initiative to tax the rich so that Democrats, especially billionaires and large corporations, “pay fair distributions.”

Do you take taxes from the rich?

Jeff Bezos last week Dig Biden’s billionaires’ tax aspirations have blamed the US president, especially for trying to link the country’s soaring inflation with tax-raising initiatives.

Bezos later said that inflation was “the most damaging regressive tax for the wealthiest people,” adding that “the wrong direction does not help the country.”

Musk, in his turn, claimed that he had already “paid the most personal taxes in history.” He was one of the loudest critics of Biden’s Billionaire Tax Initiative, which assumed a minimum tax rate of 20% for all American households worth more than $ 100 million.

State switching

With a clear move to divorce from California (a state traditionally considered a hub of democracy), millionaires are in Texas (building a Tesla Giga factory in Austin) and Miami (his electric car company). Solve traffic problems.

“California has changed from a land of opportunity to a land of taxes, with over-regulation and proceedings,” Musk said.

Freedom of speech

Others in Silicon Valley also seem to have problems with the Democratic Party. Among them are Paul Graham, founder of Y Combinator, and Marc Andreessen, head of top venture A16Z. On their side, millionaires also pointed out another issue on issues within Democratic policy: freedom of speech.

“Previously, censorship was done by the right and freedom of speech was endorsed by the left. But over the past few decades, banning” problematic “ideas has been a leftist culture. It became a big factor of. Graham Tweet In mid-April, people on the left claimed that they had fewer attacks and censorship attempts from mainstream social media platforms such as Twitter than people on the right.
Andreessen repeated his own feelings Tweet Later, “virtually the entire mainstream news agency [has] Within 10 years, he reversed freedom of speech 180 degrees, without remembering what they once had the opposite view. “

The Biden administration formed a so-called “Disinformation Commission” after continuing to fight what was considered “disinformation,” which soon faced a wave of criticism and lasted less than a month. Notoriously closed.
