On Monday, the White House accused Amazon founder Jeff Bezas after the billionaire accused President Biden of “going the wrong way” in his comments regarding inflation and corporate taxes. From the report: On Friday, Biden tweeted that the richest corporations must “pay their fair share” to help bring down record-breaking inflation. Biden also recently met with Amazon’s job organizers after their union victory. Bezos responded to Biden, saying inflation and corporate taxes are not linked. “Raising taxes on businesses is a good thing to discuss. Taming inflation is very important to discuss. Mixing them together is just the wrong direction,” he tweeted.
“To find out why one of the richest people on Earth opposes an economic program for the middle class that cuts some of the biggest costs families face, fights inflation for a long time, and adds to the historical, doesn’t require big steps to understand why one of the richest people on Earth opposes reducing the presidential deficit is achieved by asking the richest taxpayers and corporations to pay their fair share, ”White House Deputy Spokeswoman Andrew Bates said in a statement to the Washington Post. “It’s also not surprising that this tweet came after the president’s meeting with work organizers, including Amazon staff.” Bezas soon responded, saying the White House was trying to “cover up the issue.” “They know that inflation hurts the most. But unions don’t cause inflation like rich people. Remember that the administration tried its best to add another $ 3.5 trillion to federal spending,” he tweeted. “They have failed, but if they had succeeded, inflation would have been even higher than it is today, and inflation is at its highest level in 40 years.”
