But it's hardly fair to criticize what Bernie pays his campaign workers. He has to get out there on the road and generate those dollars from donations
and speaking fee's, etc. etc. etc..
In other words, he has to actually earn the money, that his staff in turn then earns from him. His staff does not have access to the ever flowing
sweetened milk teet, of the American taxpayer. If only he could tap into this, he could pay his campaign workers better.... It's not that he's a
hypocrite, or that he doesn't want to. He just cannot deliver these goods and promises without a substantial tax burden upon the populace to pay for
Here's where it gets funny... If he can't actually implement this for his own staffers because there's no fiduciary basis, how does anyone think he's
going to pull it off on an even bigger scale, like say the size of a 300 million population country ? Lets ignore his ideas never getting through
Congress, and pretend he could wave a magic wand and make it happen.... As the number of taxpayers to fund these ideas increases, there is a negative
balance that grows along with it. In other words the more people paying, the more people receiving, and thus an scaled increase in costs and
Anyone who thinks he can do this for the whole country, when he can't even pull it off for his own staff is a moron.
