    So Sanders recently paid $600,000 for a lakefront property and paid a lower tax rate than most of the middle class yet he rails against wealth. I'll figure it up someday but it took me a few years to make what he paid for his lakefront property. The clever comments from Twitter is worth a read regardless of one's opinion about this recent house purchase and his hypocrisy!! I do wonder about his criticism of the President. That too seems hypocritical. Oh well.

      That $600 K home was a gift from Hillary for his support of her candidacy, after she won the Dem nomination by rigging and getting questions for their debates in advance! The crook already owns 2 more homes and is lecturing Americans about obsession with wealth, money, etc! All top politicians of communist and socialist countries live in ultra luxury while their people have to stand ln queues to get the basic necessities in rationed quantities week after week and that was what this guy planned for us! Lucky this geriatric dumbo did not get the nomination!

      Yet another Ultra-Lib thats a: "Do as I say, not as I do", -or- Everyone's equal, but some are more equal than others!"  I don't see how so many inner city poor to extremely poor people can Not realize that the people who are talking about "Income Inequality" like Soros, Sanders, Clinton, Pelosi, Warren, etc, etc, are multi-milionares, are even Billionares!

    Ok Bernie...What have you done in your personal life to help the poor...not under your job duties? Ever drive the elderly to their appointments, become an Ombudsman for an area nursing home, be a volunteer on a ambulance or fire engine in your community for 20 years, be a Sunday School teacher??? My husband and I are an ED doctor and nurse and have done all these things as volunteers. We came from poor families and worked our way to where we a today so I do not feel guilty about my income. We make a comfortable living of 300K (gross), own one house, two children, vacation every two years, and pay a 39 % tax rate since Obama took office!!!! Your 13% tax rate makes me so angry! But back to my point...So tell me what have you done in your personal life to help ?

      Ralph, I'd like to know that as well. There are many long-time Reps who are wealthy. So WHERE does that money come from? They do get big contributions from lobbyists but they can't use that money for personal stuff legally. You all should check out the list of how much Monsanto gave Senators to vote against labelling of GMOs -- Cruz got a cool million!!

    Anders is a hypocrite. Has he ever in his life worked a real job. The answer is no. He's never had to struggle for money because he's always been paid by taxpayers. He paid about 14% taxes so why isn't he paying his fair share that he's demanding of everybody else to pay ?   The men have three homes, lavish homes, he wouldn't know what it is to struggle to pay a bill as most Americans do. What charitable organizations does he ever give to?  He's a total socialist who continues to live the high which life which he criticizes everybody else about. If you cared that much about the American people why hasn't he done something for some American people in his entire life time.

    Bernie indicated that his total wealth is $528k in his presidential run paperwor. 

    If so, how does he pay $600k for his third vacation home? Hillary? Russians? Gift from unnamed Martians?

    Mr. Sanders must be talking about the elitist crowds that he knows and runs with... he certainly isn't talking about the middle class people of this country as we haven't a clue what that kind of "wealth" is.  We work to pay bills and try to survive, not buy vacation homes that we visit once or twice a year.  I have never "worshipped" wealth... I have never had "wealth" of the kind he is speaking of and never will. Just shows how totally out of touch with the "real world" he really is.  He is a hypocrite and so are most of the "wealthy" people in this country... wanting to hoard his money while placing the blame for the poor on the "working class" citizens, expecting them to pay for everything, while they continue to sit idly by doing nothing. Spare me Mr. Sanders.... you haven't got a clue what you are talking about.  And it's typical that you chose not to reply to anyone... why is that?  Coward perhaps, or just realized how stupid your comment truly was?

    Here's a guy who didn't even earn a paycheck until into his 40s, reportedly lived in his VW for much of that time, and finds it impossible to comment on America without slamming either "the 1%" (which he's pretty close to being part of), or "millionaires and billionaires" who aren't "paying their fair share."  Three houses and a US Senator's salary pretty much puts him into the top tier of the country...perhaps the top 2% or so, salary-wise?  So shut up, Bernie.

      My father voted for Bernie in the primary, but he figured out what the Democratic Party finally stood for during the small period of time that Hillary opened her mouth and inserted her foot! She told coal miners that she was" going to be putting a lot of coal miners out of business"! I showed him that Bernie had the same plans also, and he was so upset, bc he had actually voted for his own pension to stop if Bernie would have been nominated instead! I taught him a lot of things that he had never knew about the Democratic Party, and he was shocked that he had followed them his entire life, but he started listening to what Trump was really saying rather than what the news told him what he had said, and guess what happened!? He and my mother voted for Trump over Hillary, bc she was so corrupt that it was blatant! If you get right down to the individual instead of assuming that they have never been in the Democratic Party before, but they have heard enough crap to figure them out, and who they truly stand for over your interests instead then you can see the light also, but that would mean you're a bigot or some "ist", "ism" or "ic" on their list, but you can't say that every person votes with their wallet, principles, or religion, bc I know plenty of people that use liberalism in place of their religion in itself! They think about it through a prism of shades of colors to limit of calling anything or anyone racist that doesn't agree with their line of thinking! If you can't see that yet then you haven't been paying attention to the last few elections of how many people have been attacked for the same behavior that the same person they're running against has done themselves or their spouse has done in a public manner also! Look into Herman Cain's Presidency run, bc it is the same fight tactics over and over again! They seek out their strongest opposition in the Primary, and they try to destroy them during the primary, but they wanted Trump to win, bc they thought that's who they could easily beat, but Hillary was so bad of a candidate that she couldn't even beat him, and they threw everything including the kitchen sink at him, but they underestimated what the movement and message that he was saying to the people that was resonating in so many states, and they dropped the ball on several key states! Even though they brought out celebrities, concerts, and anything else they could think of, but they were seeing the shift in the grass root polls, but they wouldn't dare share those polls with the rest of the country! I'll be real honest too, bc I know of several people in my family that were lifelong Democrats that had finally had had enough of the propaganda that was shoved down their throats that they voted opposite of what they were basically threatened by their union bosses to do, and they decided to not listen to them, and Trump has had more union bosses in The White House to ask them questions than Obama! That spoke volumes to me, but he still gets no credit for doing it, Bc the unions have paid for the Dem. Party forever, but they have taken them for granted even! So they have absolutely no one to blame but themselves!! Period!! End of Story!! End Of Rant!!

      Barbara Fuller, why is it when a dem posts a comment its full of hateful name calling? People here are discussing the content and hipocracy of a legitimate story. I'm no spring chik. Single income that qualifies well below middle class. Survivor of stage lv blood cancer. Didn't work for two years. Then went back to an industrial job of 38 years. Government wasn't knocking on my door to help me pay the bills. I'm no stranger to hardships life can handout. I'm not telling this for sympathy. We all have stories in life. I chose to look at mine as a short interruption in life.

      I wish you well.

    If THIS is not the kind of nation we should be living in, I would invite The Bern to go live in a nation that follows his mantra.    I believe true wealth is not measured by what you have, but by what you give.  BTW, has anyone informed Bernie of his statistical % rants during the campaign that EVERY nation and economic system has a top 1%, or any other % you can dream up. A totally useless comparison.

    Hey Bernie. Minimum wage is 17,000 not 40,000. I know that's just pocket change to someone who sold out to Hilary, but just curious, how much is your integrity going for these days? Anyway. Maybe someone could explain to me why the people who are against us becoming wealthy are wealthy themselves? What are they afraid of?

    Bernie Sanders complains about some Americans worshipping wealth to the exclusion of showing concern for the underprivileged. I think he has a point, regardless of whether I agree with all of his proposals. But this does not make him a hypocrite for being affluent.

    Sanders has always been a big hypocrite and everyone is right, he has never worked private sector and actually EARNED a paycheck, yet his net worth puts him in that top 1% of Americans.  My questions are how did he get away with only paying 13.5% tax rate when his income exceeded $200,000 per yr for many years and the BIG question is why is it that ole Bernie bought a home on a lake front RIGHT after he conceded the primary to Clinton in 2016, is that just coincidence or was it a pay off to step out.  I would like that question answered because it sounds like something illegal happened.
