31. No, Bernie singles out others.

 

His money, BTW, came from high book sales since 2016. Oh, the horror!


Imagine what he would have said if HRC's response to comments on her wealth had said "I wrote a best-selling book. If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too."

The fur would have flown... and it would have been made an issue that those books were sold at, and profits shared with Amazon and WalMart.

If other career politicians change their talking points, it's called "waffling" or "pivoting." But when Bernie has changes his taxing the wealthy talking points from "millionaires and millionaires" to "the billionaire class" and "multi-millionaires," once he becomes a millionaire it's not an issue at all. Certainly one wouldn't feel a need to do that if there isn't anything appearing inconsistent in delivering the previous talking points while being a millionaire. Bernie seems to require being treated differently than those he criticizes.

He's against the rich ripping off everyone else. He's against predatory, unregulated capitalism. He's against the rich not paying their fair share. He's against corporate government.


So is every Democratic POTUS candidate. Why is Bernie singled out as being somehow 'better' on this than other Democratic POTUS candidates? They also campaign for workers just as much, and thus far, none of their campaign staffs have felt a need to unionize.




If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
