Bernie is a wealthy man, and is just offering the public more so he can become even wealthier. He doesnt care about us, and never has.

The funny thing is when the rich can no longer get richer our country(USA) is in big trouble.
The rich should always get richer, what did you think the rich should get poorer?
rhetorical question of course.

The billionaires who have grown the fastest over the last fifteen years are almost all liberal Democrats. I would say the upper ten percent has more Democrats now than the republicans have.

Bernie Sanders' public net worth is $2.5 Million. He owns a $120,000 Ferrari.

Bernie's "hidden" assets are worth more.

$120k doesn't even get a very nice Ferrari.
I kind of feel sorry for him.

Bernie is in the 1% and has never worked a day in his life. But he needs more money. Screw him. I've never heard a convincing argument to ever listen to a word he says (or really any argument, for that matter).


Does he know to get into top 1% is "family" earnings of over 400k? That is not rich anyway you look at it.

"Rich" is a subjective term. $400k may not be "rich" to you, but it's still the top one percent. According to Bernie the government should have the majority of that $400k. It gets worse and worse as you get more and more into the details of a Bernie presidency.

Facts are not difficult to check. Bernie is absolutely and solidly part of the 1%.

a Bernie presidency.


AKA "a fictional pipe dream" look, Bernie couldn't even bag as many DEMOCRAT votes as Hillary Clinton last go around. His campaign is DOA. Hes there to serve a single purpose, a honey d_ck for all the doe eyed Millenial idjits who wouldn't even bother following politics or consider voting if not for the crazy old coot promising them free crap in exchange for their votes... just as he did in 2016, Bernie will convince the actual nominee, whoever it may end up being, that he can dupe enough of his inexperienced cadre of suckers into voting for said actual nominee... for a price, of course. Clinton paid Bernie handsomely and Bernie happily sold out, but he essentially failed to deliver his suckers successfully to Clinton. Bernie got the money needed to keep his old lady out of the federal slam for her criminal embezzlement from the university she took to the cleaners... now he needs the papers to provide his comfortable retirement, so I'd expect he will be a bit more gentle in demonizing whoever the chosen one really is this time around and maybe, just maybe he can convince another DNC nominee that he can actually deliver the goods in exchange for that retirement fund padding.

Bernie Sanders is a joke. I'd LOVE to see him get the nomination because he'd guarantee the GOP a win by literal voter booth bloodbath in November. The old bastard cant get half of his own party to vote for him... does anyone really believe he can get any measure of independent moderates or party crossovers to vote against their wallets and put him in the White House? Pffft! Nah, not happening.

For the first time in forever the bottom are getting the biggest gains, under Trump. Most of the wage gains are going to the bottom 40%. Democrats need new talking points.

Bernie is a political hack. The fact he can make these comments as the poorest in the country are seeing unprecedented wage gains is disgusting.


Pay Is Rising Fastest for Low Earners.
As the analysis has shown us, wage growth at the bottom is doing well. It has been around 4.1 percent over the last two years — above the 3.6 percent at the top end, and above the overall average of 3.9 percent.

www.nytimes.com...

That is YEARS of the bottom outperforming the top. Bernie disgusts me.

For a career politician he's done quite well so instead of 80% tax on his wealth we should do 75%

He doesn't need that much money

poor Bernie, he is senile and can't remember Trump and his tree planting initiative. Or is that not something that will help "climate change"? Sanders is just another fool.

Listen to some of the committed leftists. They're firmly convinced the only possibly reason the corrupt in Congress and government in general are corrupt is because business exists. Seriously, they think that if government abolishes business and rich people (nevermind how rich government officials are themselves), then that would leave those people no more reason to be corrupt and everything would be sunshine, unicorns, and rainbows. UTOPIA!

It's the only explanation for why they continually press for more power to an obviously corrupt system like our government and bureaucracy that has already screwed up systems they want to enhance and make even stronger.

Wonder which Home Bernie is resting in today .... and how many accountants he has LoL

How Bernie Sanders, The Socialist Senator, Amassed A $2.5 Million Fortune


Bernie Sanders, the democratic socialist senator from Vermont, is a fierce critic of the affluent in America. That’s a bit rich, considering he himself is well off.

Sanders, 77, has, in fact, amassed an estimated $2.5 million fortune from real estate, investments, government pensions—and earnings from three books, including the 2016 hit Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In. “I wrote a best-selling book. If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too,” ......

.....In addition to the books are his government pay and pension accounts. Sanders has collected a six-figure annual salary since he joined Congress in 1991, some of which he and his wife (who herself commanded hefty pay as head of now-defunct Burlington College) plowed into personal real estate. Then there are his pensions, which are based on income and years of service. With 28 years in office and a current salary of $174,000, Sanders is entitled to around $73,000 a year from the federal government for the rest of his life. If he were to sell that guaranteed income stream for a lump-sum pile of cash, Forbes figures he could get around $650,000 for it.......

Before he was elected to Congress, Sanders ran a small business producing filmstrips on New England history for schools and served as mayor of Burlington, Vermont. From his time running Burlington, he gets another $428 a month from a city pension, which is worth roughly $50,000.

Seems like he is stuck on his OLD talking points ... Thank goodness the public is not
