“Another government stimulus package is not in the best interests of the people imo,” he wrote.

“As a reminder, I”;m in *favor* of universal basic income. Goal of government should be to maximize the happiness of the people. Giving each person money allows them to decide what meets their needs, rather than the blunt tool of legislation, which creates self-serving special interests,” he continued.

“These are jammed to gills with special interests earmarks. If we do a stimulus at all, it should just be direct payments to consumers.”

Elon recently made headlines after private conversations between him and Amber Heard were revealed in court.
