Bernie Sanders wrote on twitter about ultrarich paying lower taxes and looting America for over 40 years. He mentioned in his tweet that the richest 400 Americans are worth $3 trillion which is equivalent to the size of the entire UK economy.
Remember, bread lines are a GOOD thing!
Says the guy that’s been living off of a government salary for his entire life without actually doing anything.
There’s a massive difference between the act of looting (violent theft of personal property) and utility of tax loopholes. No one is directly harmed in the latter.
Bernie, this is not helpful. No please leave me and my fellow Americans to do our jobs protecting our businesses from communist ideologues.
Bernie is that old guy at Thanksgiving that always turns conversations back to the wierd supplement he is selling when nobody was talking to him in the first place.
I find it odd that so many of my fellow citizens actually defend the elite business owners for hoarding all the money, and not allow any of it to trickle down to the taxpayers.
It's not surprising there is so much instability in the capitalist system, since it's in place only to make money, not to be fair to workers.
But it's the job of the lawmakers (we pay them with our taxes) to do their jobs, and make sure we get at least a living wage from all the hard work we have done.
If they can't do that much, then we can't be expected to vote for them again.
Crustie the Old Commie is jealous; he has been wanting to do the looting for the past 40 years.
BOOM. MIC DROP. Bernie speaks the truth, especially since he was someone who has marched and been arrested protecting peoples civil liberties unlike bunker bone spurs Don.
Not this guy again. Didn't he sellout and endorsed the system he hates, twice already? It's almost like he doesnt believe what he says...
Hmmmmmm why does an angry impotent socialist who can’t win an election for the leadership of his country justifying violent crime against a small and powerful group of people who are oppressing the majority from the shadows sound familiar......
Yeah Jeff Bezos looted everyone who uses his service, and Steve jobs literally robbed the Americans who gave him their money for a phone he invented 🙄
Wealth isn’t a 0 sum game, even though the ultra wealthy has a lot of money they didn’t “loot it”. They created more wealth than just what they have. For ever worker they have and everyone who has their products.
He is correct... They also have their own little version of socialism to protect their wealth n pay zero or near nothing. While feeding u crumbs and gobs of lies
Ah yes, typical socialist. Just says rich are bad, unreasonably and without any particular arguments.
Gotcha. "Loot the looters" is an infamous Bolshevik slogan: http://soviethistory.msu.edu/1917-2/economic-apparatus/economic-apparatus-texts/lenin-loot-the-looters/
Yes, I have heard stories of billionaires breaking in stores armed with A401K-15 loaded with investments screaming "Give me your stock!"
Bernie must be somewhere between 400 and 500!
Trust a leftist to throw fuel in a forest fire. By the way, isn't this guy rich? Is it a confession of comitting a federal crime?
He should have stapled his thethesis to the white house door instead of using a free service provided by the ultra rich to get his message across.
I find it amusing that capitalists have no problem with the state bending over backwards to give them handouts and subsidies and tax loop holes and corporate law that allows them to lie, cheat and steal, make billions then pay a few million in fines. No problem with all that.
But as soon as a suggestion comes about that would have the state looking out for the interests of the people....well hey...that’s “evil socialism.”
