It has to be hard to be Elon Musk. Yep, everyone's favorite Space Karen is crying into it giggle melancholy and fiddling with his flame-throwing in anger. It has focused on a proposal before the U.S. Senate to tax Musk and his wealthiest friends.

In particular, these billions would be subject to a 23.8% capital gains tax on the higher value of unsold assets such as stocks and bonds.

    Elon has plenty of money

    Let's be clear: the person is almost certainly buying anonymous baby food for X Æ A-12. Its net worth rose with weariness $ 36.2 billion alone Monday in response to a rise in Tesla stock.

    he is reported earning $ 610.8 million a week - that's $ 152.7 million a day, $ 6.3 million an hour, or $ 106,000 a minute.

    But let 's not forget that with the fact that we pay our taxes every year (and it's not paying), we have effectively subsidized not only Elon Musk's lifestyle , but also on his empty projects.

Look, no all bad, for example, SpaceX won $ 900 million from the U.S. government to expand broadband access to rural America. This is a good investment in satellites, especially if it translates to connections to remote areas in South America, Australia and Africa.

    However, most of the money spent on various Elon Musk initiatives depends on investing in sustainable public transport.

    The problem is public transport, not flying people into space
