Hiroyuki (Hiroyuki Nishimura), founder of 2channel, updated his Twitter page on 18 January. In response to questions about his tax payments, he explained that he had been paying taxes in the range of “10 million to 100 million” since his 20s. Mr Hiroyuki currently lives in Paris.
Mr Hiroyuki said, “The birthrate continues to decline and the proportion of elderly people is increasing. If we don’t stop increasing the burden on the working generation, society cannot sustain itself. ‘We will not apply insurance to gastric lavage for bedridden elderly people. We need politicians who can say, ‘Old people who can’t eat should survive on their own money or give up’. Who will shoulder the hated role for the future?’ Medical journalist Junya Ito quoted a tweet on Twitter saying. “‘Hiroyuki talks about the burden on the working generation, but has he paid a good amount of income tax individually in Japan in his life so far? We want to know that first.” The response to the question.
Hiroyuki said, “When I was paying taxes in Japan, I paid from 20 units to 10 million to 100 million in taxes.” (*original text), he posted. Later, in response to another tweet, he wrote: “There was a time when a list of high taxpayers called Chouja-banzuke was published. I was on the Chouzanbanzuke of Tokyo’s Kita Ward, so I’m sure you can find me if you look.” He explained about his tax payments.
As for gastrostomy, he said, “It’s a Scandinavian welfare story: in Sweden, gastrostomy surgery is not covered by insurance for the elderly.” The American Geriatrics Society, the American Alzheimer’s Association and the European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism are against gastrostomy for the elderly and dementia patients,” he also posted.
