20. Why is this even a thing?


The writer says, "The tax returns raised questions about whether Sanders' newfound wealth conflicts with his message."

The only people where this raises a question are those who want to use Sanders' success to bash him. It's a weird attack, and I don't think it works as people are intending.

Sanders has never said everyone need take a vow of poverty. If anything, he speaks of making the middle class more prosperous. And, shocker, some of that prosperity could put more people on equal footing as affluent people; this could give more would-be authors time and space to write a book if they so choose because they're not worrying about working two minimum wage jobs to make ends meet.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
