So the head of Tesla and SpaceX responded to the publication that in the event of the introduction of the “tax for billionaires” promoted by the U.S. Democrats, the payments of Elon Musk and the head of Amazon and Blue Origin Jeff Bezos would be enough to finance a mission to land a man on Mars.

The head of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, intends to spend his money on a human flight to Mars.

“My plan is to use the money to get humanity to Mars and keep the mind shining,” he wrote on his Twitter page on Thursday.

This is how he responded to the publication of The Washington Post journalist Christian Davenport that in the event of the introduction of a “tax for billionaires” promoted by the U.S. Democrats, the payments of Musk and the head of Amazon and Blue Origin Jeff Bezos would be enough to finance a mission to land a man on Mars. At the same time, it is assumed that the proceeds from the tax initiative will be used to finance the social and economic agenda of the administration of U.S. President Joe Biden.

On Wednesday, Musk spoke out against the “tax for billionaires.” On Twitter, he stressed that the introduction of a tax for the most affluent segments of the population will not help solve the problem of the U.S. national debt, which exceeds $ 28.9 trillion.
