My first reaction to his comments was thinking that he was whining. That will almost always be my first impression when hearing a multi-millionaire (seemingly) complain about financial issues.
I read the transcript of his short discussion, and I didn't get the impression he was whining. He was just stating that he was going to have to make some changes going forward. As we all do, when it comes to where we live.
Unfortunately, government actions regarding what is best for us may not be what we think is best. When that occurs, we have to either accept their decisions, or make a change.
For those who think Mikelson should be happy with whatever he makes, I would turn it around and ask them whether they are happy with what they make (compared to the vast majority of the world, we are ALL extremely wealthy), and if they could realize an immediate 13.3% increase in income, would they do it?
However, I think Harmonious is dead on here. Especially, the bold part. Everything is relative, and we (assuming "we" here is referring to the middle class) look at somebody making 10 or 50 times as much as us and think they have no right to complain. Well, everybody reading this also has somebody out there who is making 1/10th or 1/50 as much as them, and those people are saying the same thing about us when we complain about taxes and finances.
That said, even though I believe his opinions, whatever they are, are valid ... he probably should just keep them to himself. But he really didn't say anything yet, so I'll wait until Wednesday when he supposedly clears it all up, and see what he has to say then.
