Bezos Donations

This is a story that shows no good deed goes unpunished. Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon is donating $2 billion of his own funds to support Montessori Schools and help the homeless. The left is complaining that he is acting privileged, this is not a good idea because the government should do it, we shouldn’t let rich guys run the country etc. I don’t get it. Wealthy people have contributed financially to this country forever with great results. Bill Gates though his foundation has almost reduced malaria in Africa. Carnegie endowed libraries. Are we better off if Bezos put the money in his own pocket?
