During an appearance at this year’s Vox Media Code Conference in Los Angeles, the billionaire entrepreneur and owner of an NBA team, Mark Cuban, tore into Senator Elizabeth Warren for her calls to modify the tax code in order to put the screws to the wealthiest Americans. Cuban’s attack on the Massachusetts Democrat came during Cuban’s speech. Cuban is the owner of an NBA team.
Warren, who has been a hero of her party’s progressive and socialist base for waging class warfare on millionaires and billionaires whom she has called to be made to pay more through her “ultra-millionaire tax” proposal, with Cuban being one of those who would be squeezed, was affectionately nicknamed “Pocahontas” by former President Donald J. Trump in a dig at her grossly exaggerated claims about her Native American heritage. Trump gave her this nickname as
During a debate on Tuesday at the meeting of tech and business professionals, the host of “Shark Tank” unloaded on Warren, saying, “I don’t mind getting taxed more. I made a blog post about it 20 years ago, and I still remember thinking that paying your taxes is the most patriotic thing you can do after serving in the military, because it is what makes it possible for everyone to live and flourish.
“But the concept of just ‘Soak the wealthy, billionaire tears, billionaire tears fill that cup’ — screw you, Elizabeth Warren, you’re everything wrong with politics,” Cuban continued. “Soak the rich, billionaire tears, billionaire tears fill that cup.”
In the past, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks has voiced his disagreement with Warren’s plan, which is described as follows on her website: “For decades, the affluent and the well-connected have put American government to work for their own limited interests. As a direct consequence of this, a few number of families have amassed an enormous portion of the wealth that has been generated by the labor of American people, while the middle class in the United States has been eviscerated.
The end consequence is an unprecedentedly high level of wealth concentration, which cannot be found in any other major economy. “The 400 wealthiest Americans today control more money than all Black households and a quarter of Latino households combined,” Warren adds, adding in the traditional racial component to target high earners. Warren is a member of the Democratic Party and is running for president in 2020.
During an interview with Fox Business from the previous year, Cuban stated, “I don’t think Elizabeth Warren knows at all what she’s talking about when she deals with this.” Cuban was referring to Warren’s statements about this topic. “I believe that she just enjoys demonizing people who are affluent, and that’s great with me.”
During the course of an appearance on MSNBC, Warren fired back, saying, “Mark Cuban’s concern is not that I don’t know what I’m talking about.” “The trouble for Mark Cuban is that I am very aware of what I am speaking about.”
She stated, “We need to reform the laws so that they are not made merely by the lobbyists for Mark Cuban and his cronies.” “We need to modify the laws so that they don’t just write themselves.”
Elon Musk, the millionaire CEO of Space X and Tesla, got involved in a spat with the strident and unsuccessful presidential candidate who was so unpopular that she was humiliated in the primary election held in her own state.
After Elon Musk was selected as Time’s Person of the Year, she sent out a tweet with the following message: “Let’s alter the rigged tax law so The Person of the Year will really pay taxes and stop freeloading off of everyone else.”
Musk didn’t come out and say “screw you” like his fellow demonized billionaire Cuban did, but he got his point across by tweeting out a Fox News article accusing Warren of being a fraud for repeatedly lying about her Indian ancestry to further her academic and political careers. In the article, Warren is accused of lying about her Indian ancestry in order to advance her academic and political careers.
