While Democrats try (and fail) to browbeat Congress into passing Joe Biden’s “Build Back Bankrupt” plan and billing taxpayers trillions for it — on the tails of surging inflation, higher gas prices, and panic-induced lockdowns — Sen. Elizabeth Warren would prefer you believe that the only people such policies target are eccentric billionaires such as SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Musk picked up his Twitter war with Warren again on Sunday night, after the two sparred over his taxes last week. Warren accused Musk of “freeloading” in an attempt to plug income tax reform last Monday. In response, Musk dredged up her infamous claims of American Indian ancestry, telling her to “stop projecting.”
“You remind me of when I was a kid and my friend’s angry Mom would just randomly yell at everyone for no reason,” he added. “Please don’t call the manager on me, Senator Karen.”
Please don’t call the manager on me, Senator Karen 🙏

On Sunday night, Musk waded into the discussion again, tweeting that he “will pay over $11 billion in taxes this year.”
Should Musk — who reportedly paid no federal income taxes in 2018 — be paying more in taxes? Maybe. But most Americans care far less about his IRS bill than about their own growing gas prices, the surging cost of groceries, a supply chain crisis, and their businesses struggling to recover from Democrat-mandated closures.
These struggles have been caused or exacerbated by the same reckless spending and policies that Democrats want to finance more of by raising taxes on people like Musk (and also you). Warren and her pals just don’t want you connecting the dots; instead, they’d much rather blame the billionaires for their own poor money management.
Don’t be fooled by the smoke-and-mirrors attacks on Musk, whose companies have received millions in government subsidies. Democrats’ recklessly unconstitutional spending dreams will hurt Musk far less than they will hurt you.
