Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has reached his limit with Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), warning that she’s “everything that’s wrong with politics.”
The billionaire blasted Warren during an appearance today at Vox Media’s Code Conference in Los Angeles.
“I don’t mind being taxed more,” Cuban said.
“I wrote a blog 20 years ago saying it’s the most patriotic thing you can do, after military service, is pay your taxes because that’s what allows everybody to live and to prosper
“But yeah, the idea of ‘soak the rich,’ billionaire tears that fill that cup — screw you Elizabeth Warren, you’re everything that’s wrong with politics.”
Warren claims that Cuban is blasting her socialist tax policies because he doesn’t understand them.
“Mark Cuban’s problem is not that I don’t know what I’m talking about,” Warren said.
“Mark Cuban’s problem is that I know exactly what I’m talking about.”
“We need to change the laws so they’re not written just by the lobbyists for Mark Cuban and his buddies,” she added.
Cuban said earlier:
“I don’t think Elizabeth Warren knows at all what she’s talking about when she deals with this.
“I think she just likes to demonize people that are wealthy and that’s fine.
“It’s a great political move for her, but I just don’t think that they really understand the implications of taxing unrealized gains.”
Warren also went after Elon Musk.
She said of the guy who slept on his factory floor for months straight to stop Tesla from going bankrupt:
“Elon Musk didn’t make it on his own.
“He got huge investments from the government, from taxpayers, from those public school teachers and those minimum wage workers who have been paying their taxes all along.”
