Senator Elizabeth warren is burning the earth Jeff Bezos leave Earth – she is pissed off about her trip to space and says everyone who pays their taxes should be too.
We received the Senator on Thursday at Reagan National Airport and asked him if the richest man in the world had added to the first crewed flight into space for his aerospace company, Blue Origin.
Warren says Bezos to launch into space is a complete insult to American taxpayers because the trip is, in fact, funded by them – while Bezos does not pay his fair share of taxes … at least according to the senator.
As she says, the great Amazonian laughs to space.

As we reported … Jeff and his brother travel in space July 20 in a rocket named New Shepard, and they’re auctioning a spot on the 6-seat capsule, with the highest bid currently approaching $ 5 million.
The point is, Bezos is worth around $ 190 billion – so no matter how much he pays in taxes, he could more than just buy a ticket on the rocket.
Of course, that reinforces Senator Warren’s point a bit. Watch the video … you can feel his contempt for Bezos.
