@GunnelsWarren: If Jeff Bezos, the richest man alive worth $188 billion, can afford an $8.4 billion acquisition of MGM and a $500 million 417-foot yacht with a helipad, you know what? He does not need $10 billion in corporate welfare to fund his space hobby. Yes. We will end the Bezos bailout.

@BernieSanders: Jeff Bezos is the richest guy on the planet. He’s gotten $86 billion richer since the start of the COVID pandemic. Does he really need $10 billion from Congress for space exploration?
