Socialist Bernie Sanders seem to be in love with capitalism. Last year former Presidential candidate made $1 million dollars.
Sanders earned $174,000 for his service in the Senate.
The senator hit the $1 million mark for the first time in 2016. Most of his income came from a book deal “Our Revolution,” which came out after his failed bid for the Democratic nomination for president.
Sanders, an independent, historically has been among the least wealthy members of Congress. In 2014, for example, he earned little more than his congressional salary and had $330,000 in assets.
The 2016 presidential bid catapulted him to national prominence and paved the way for lucrative public speaking and publishing opportunities.
Now that Bernie has accumulated all this wealth, perhaps he can start spreading some of it if he truly believe in his cause? Maybe he needs to start sharing all that wealth. He has no need to have all that money. Time to give up some of that cash Bernie!
