Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders exploded on Monday when asked during a Fox News town hall about accepting tax breaks that he voted against and why he did not send the money back given the fact that he constantly is claiming that the wealthy need to pay more in taxes:

I love the way Bernie deflected by demanding they ask Trump how much taxes he pays which is nobodies business. Additionally, everyone knows Trump donates his entire salary minus 1 dollar mostly back to the government.

Like all liberals, they want to spend other peoples money, not their own. As soon as they give away all of their own salary less the average in the U.S. and give away all of their own wealth less the average wealth in the U.S. in the name of income and wealth equality, I'll listen.

Until then they remain hypocrites.

It's everybody's business.

But he scams much more off the taxpayers by billing them for staff housing when he takes his weekly vacation at his properties. The salary giveback is just for show.

Brett Baier missed out big time by failing to press Sanders on his statement of "why don't you ask Donald Trump how much he gave to charity".

What Baier should have said was, "We will and then we'll give him an opportunity to respond. But right now we're asking you!"

Yes, I watched that start to finish.

Bernie Sanders is a fraud! At virtually every rally I've heard him shout into the microphone, he has vilified and demonized "millionaires", as "criminals" as though earning wealth is synonymous with theft and exploitation of the innocent.....where the innocent are defined largely as recent college grads with large student loans and low paying jobs. He has blasted the top 1% as ravagers of our nation's wealth who give little but only take.

But now that his own tax returns are out, we see AGIs of over $1,000,000 for 2016 and 2017, and $561,293 for 2018, putting his household in the top 1% of earners in the US. When challenged on this, his reply was

“I wrote a best-selling book,” he said. “If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.”

But couldn't anyone with an Adjusted Gross of >$1,000,000 say exactly the same thing in relation to what they do? Does book revenue deserve some spot on the morality scale higher than revenue from, say, selling smart phones, managing a pension fund or playing quarterback for the New England Patriots?

Sanders should be applauded for releasing 10 years of his 1040s. Had these returns shown extremely large donations to charitable causes or had he made large percent contributions of his annual incomes to the US Government to be used towards reduction of the national debt, then his railings would have meaning and would demand our respect. But he didn't and clearly has no intention of making such magnanimous use of his new found wealth. And you can bet that his tax returns, like yours and mine, worked to minimize tax within the limits allowed.

In short, this man is a common, simple garden variety, run-of-the-mill liberal fraud.

Repeat after me... "The President of the United States is not required to release his tax returns!"

Of course that rhetoric is literally right out of the Marxist playbook where "Property is theft."


Just not his, apparently.

I disagree with lauding a political stunt. I don't care what's on his 1040's and it's none of mine or anyone else's business. If there's something wrong then it's the IRS's job to remedy it.
