The fight over the Pentagon's cloud computing contract is already shaping up as a battle of economic and political super heavyweights, with President Trump making clear his lack of respect for Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his business empire. #TWTFrontPage
Jeff Bezos' D.C. mansion will have:
— 2 elevators
— 25 bathrooms
— 1,006 light fixtures
— A full movie theater
Amazon's Whole Foods cut health benefits for part-time workers less than 2 months ago.
Tax the rich.
Jeff Bezos is worth over $110 billion. Amazon pays $0 in federal income taxes. Yet Bezos just cut health care for 2,000 part-time Whole Food workers.
That is what unfettered greed looks like.
We're going to make the wealthy pay their fair share and guarantee health care to all.
The median household income in the U.S. last year was about $62,000.
Someone making that much could work for 1.5 million years—not spend any of it—and still not be worth as much as Jeff Bezos.
Billionaires should not exist.
Clear your mind for a moment and count to 10.
In those 10 seconds, Jeff Bezos made more money than the median employee of Amazon makes in an entire year.
We have a crisis of inequality. We're going to address it with a wealth tax on the top 0.1%.

Many of those employees rely on food stamps, Medicaid and public housing to survive.
You know who pays for that? You do.
You know what Jeff Bezos makes every hour? $10,833,33
It's time for Amazon to get off corporate welfare.
Pause a moment and consider the way Jeff Bezos was being threatened. Now envision what Trump’s pal at the National Enquirer has on Ted Cruz, and ask yourself why Cruz went from hating Trump to loving him. Now do the same thing for Lindsey Graham. And all those Evangelicals. 😈
