Musk claims SpaceX and Tesla wouldn’t have flourished under them in 2008

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, space travel, sustainability

Elon Musk is at it again on Twitter, this time taking shots at the White House’s plan to impose a “billionaires’ tax” in the U.S.

Musk agreed with another tweeter’s statement by writing “SpaceX & Tesla would probably have died,” if there was a similar tax initiative in 2008, as “both narrowly escaped bankruptcy in 2008.”

## Elon Musk could pay an additional $50 billion in taxes.

@JimPethokoukis Good point. SpaceX & Tesla would probably have died, since both narrowly escaped bankruptcy in 2008.
