Capitalism vs. Socialism: Bernie Sanders’ Millions and 3 Homes
On Monday, April 15th Sen. Bernie Sanders has promised to release 10 years of his tax returns.
“April 15 is coming,” said Sanders in an interview with The New York Times, “We wanted to release 10 years of tax returns. April 15, 2019, will be the 10th year, so I think you will see them.”
“I wrote a best-selling book. If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.”
But when the Times reporter reminded him that he is now someone of considerable means, Sanders responded: “I wrote a best-selling book. If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.”
Sen. Sanders has pitched himself as a grassroots economic populist, focusing his campaign on income inequality and higher taxes for the rich.
Do you remember him when he used to rant against the billionaires…calling them out on their multiple yachts, cars ?
How many yachts do billionaires need? How many cars do they need? Give us a break. You can’t have it all.

Well this self-declared ‘Democratic Socialist’, now a millionaire and with multiple homes, is asking for your vote again.
In 2016 when he ran against Hillary Clinton, he released his 2014 tax return, showing $205,617 in income, including $156,441 in wages and salary and $46,213 from Social Security benefits.
But since the last Presidential campaign, Bernie Sanders has found wealth and fame. In 2017 he earned $1.06 million, 885,000 of which came from book royalties.
These are three homes owned by Bernie Sanders and his wife:
Will President Bernie Sanders, decide to give away his wealth? Will see…
