That's extremely poor as far as politicians go. It tells a story of a man who hasn't spent his career taking money from special interests. He's been a senator for decades, had a presidential run and wrote a book that sold a lot of copies. Is it really surprising or outrageous that he's at least that wealthy?

For someone that rails against the "evil rich and the 1%" the way Sanders does it's the very definition of hypocrisy.

It's like Bill Clinton lecturing people on on being faithful in your marriage.


Bernie needs to practice what he preaches.  As it stands what he wants for the country...which is an America where everyone is equally miserable because it's "fair"...he'll never feel the effects of because he's rich and can insulate himself and his family from his own actions for everyone else.

I don't see him as a hypocrite for making a decent living as a senator. I don't think he needs to be living in a dilapidated trailer on some lot to not be a hypocrite. Obama says a lot of the same stuff and his home is worth 40 million dollars. Bernie is a different breed than people like Obama and Hillary. That's why he was cheated in the Democrat primaries.

The correct answer to that question is ALWAYS "Maxine Waters",although she does have some stiff competition.

I'm not so sure. Alexandria Occasional Cortex just pulled into the lead in the stupid Olympics with her statement the if "we work our butts off we can take back all three chambers of the congress."

Rich people would feel the impacts of Bernie's ideology in practice more than anybody else.

It sounds like she might be a mole. It just seems like the stuff she says isn't just plain stupid, it's crafted stupid, the kind of fake stupid Trump uses, except geared to socialists. This ought to be interesting.  :2popcorn:

@jmyrlefuller

Nope,it's probably real stoopid. Ever heard Maxine Waters speak? That crazy black woman from Georgia who was a congresscritter from the Atlanta area speak? Pretty much any Dim from the left coast or the northeast speak?

I can't remember his name now,but there was one white Dim congresscritter from the NE that stood up in Congress after the Republicans finally won control for the first time in decades,and declared,"You can't do that to us!" When Newt told him "Why,you did it to us.",he responded in a whine,"But it's not FAIR!!!!!!"

You can't top that stuff no matter how hard you try.

@austingirl

Not so sure that is a result of stupidity. I suspect "bat shit crazy".  Take a look at her eyes.

Still,who know,maybe there ARE "three chambers of congress" in the world she lives in?

And who better to represent the people she represents than her? "Crazy" is a step up the Evolutionary Ladder for most of them.

Rich people can hide their money in various ways the gov't will never reach.  It will be the upper midle class and middle class who get screwed.

And on top of it all...Socialism is about control...not jsut the part about taxing the hell out of the "1%".  Socialism seeks to control every single aspect of every single thing in your life...in the the life of everyone they can bring into their web.  I

It's the anthesis of freedom and what this country was founded on.

Yes!!  Never give the government control of anything; they will abuse it; tax it and ruin it.

And I don't want to hear any more about this wacky dame.  Can't we just ignore her?

As always. After all that is who gets the tax codes written. Warren Buffet has been known to whine in public about how his personal secretary pays more in taxes than he does. AFAIK,no one has ever gotten close enough to him yet to ask him why he doesn't pay her more so she can live tax-free,also.

Forget the tax code if the socialists take over- they'll confiscate your salary, bank account and retirement accounts- then decide if you get an allowance.

Yeah,that might not work out as well as they hope. They have created a monster that could turn on them and explode in the political sense if the His and Her Panics think "racism",and even with the airhead white women if they get a sniff of "Sexism".

The Dems are going to be very sorry they let people like her in their party.

It's poetic justice.  They promoted this loon; now let them live with her.
