Several politicians and many Americans are convinced that the wealthiest among us don’t pay their fair share. They want the super wealthy to pay taxes not just on their incomes, but on their accumulated wealth and yet unrealized income.
What a farce. To pick out select individuals and attempt to turn Americans against them is reprehensible. This is especially true because these individuals through their entrepreneurship have changed the US and the world and directly and indirectly benefit millions of individuals.
Not only that but these companies have created a massive amount of tax revenue for local, state and the federal government through their employees, vendors, etc.
Microsoft 166,475 employees
Facebook 58,604, employees
Google (alphabet) 135,301, employees
Tesla 70,757, employees
Amazon 1,298,000, employees
SpaceX 8,000, employees
Walmart 1.6 million (US), employees
Apple 147,000, employees
All that seems to matter is furthering ones political agenda, the facts and the complete story be damned. And by the way it has been estimated that Microsoft created 12,000 millionaires, most of them early employees.
