My mother used to quote Shakespeare’s King Lear: “How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child.” I’ll bet Sen. Ron Wyden’s thinking about that.
Wyden, who continues to push for a billionaire’s tax, posted this Tweet aimed at Elon Musk:
Whether or not the world’s wealthiest man pays any taxes at all shouldn’t depend on the results of a Twitter poll. It’s time for the Billionaires Income Tax. https://t.co/KFHw3VZ45H

His son Adam, who is a Florida hedge fund manager, responded:
Why does he hate us / the American dream so much?!?!?!?!
Reality is: most legislators have never built anything… so I guess it’s easier to mindlessly and haphazardly try and tear stuff down.

Bet Thanksgiving will be fun at the Wyden house this year!
