Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos Spars With President Biden Over Economic Policy

From a Washington Post story by Jeff Stein headlined “Jeff Bezos spars with Biden White House over inflation”:

The White House is sparring with Jeff Bezos after the Amazon founder took aim at President Biden’s economic policies on Twitter.

Bezos, one of the wealthiest men in the world, criticized the White House’s economic record by pointing to high inflation on Friday, tweaking Biden by suggesting the administration’s new social media disinformation board should review the president’s claim that raising corporate taxes would bring inflation rates down. On Sunday, he kept it up, sharing a post that criticized Biden’s claims to have reduced the federal deficit. Bezos alleged that the administration tried to approve even more economic stimulus but was stopped by Sen. Joe Manchin III — an apparent reference to the White House’s long-stalled Build Back Better economic agenda. Those plans, though, were designed as long-term structural changes to the U.S. economy, not as economic stimulus.
