Bernie Sanders Is a De Facto Millionaire

Bernie Sanders Is a De Facto Millionaire
Kerri Anne Renzulli @kerenzulli March 15, 2016


Democratic presidential hopeful and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders rails against the “billionaire class,” has called income inequality “the greatest moral issue of our time,” and has made a big point of contrasting his earnings against his peers in this election.

While the senator is indeed far less wealthy than many of his Senate colleagues — as well as his fellow presidential contenders — he is not exactly a man of modest means.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: In this crucial election, I’m endorsing Hillary Clinton

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar: In this crucial election, I’m endorsing Hillary Clinton
By Kareem Abdul-Jabbar April 15 at 7:05 PM
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is an author, commentator and former professional basketball player.

This isn’t because we have a female candidate who may be her party’s nominee. That would be historically significant, as was electing Barack Obama as the first black president. His race and her gender inform who they are, as any person’s cultural background does, but it’s policies that make the politician.

And it’s policies that make me endorse Hillary Clinton for president of the United States.

Clinton tightens grip on New York

Clinton tightens grip on New York
On Hillary Clinton's home turf, there are few signs that Bernie Sanders is poised for a major upset next week.
By ANNIE KARNI 04/15/16 03:20 PM EDT

Clinton allies attribute Sanders’ inability to move the dial here so far — even after a string of momentum-building primary and caucus victories — to a confluence of factors including the Clintons’ deep ties to their adopted home state; her strong backing from progressive leaders here; a closed primary system that does not allow independents to vote; and Sanders’ consistent inability to break through with communities of color.

The Vermont senator’s own missteps, and his miscalculation of the power of the New York media, only compounded his predicament.

Most Bernie Sanders supporters aren't willing to pay for his revolution

Most Bernie Sanders supporters aren't willing to pay for his revolution
Updated by Alvin Chang on April 14, 2016, 1:00 p.m. ET

When we polled voters, we found most Sanders supporters aren't willing to pay more than an additional $1,000 in taxes for his biggest proposals. That's well short of how much more the average taxpayer would pay under his tax plan.

Two in three Sanders supporters don't want to pay more than $1,000, or at all, for universal health care
About 66 percent of Sanders supporters said they wouldn't be willing to pay more than an additional $1,000 in taxes for universal health care. This includes the 8 percent of Sanders supporters who aren't willing to pay anything at all.

Staying Relevant: Why Anti-Obama Progressives Have Jumped Aboard the Bernie Sanders Bandwagon

Staying Relevant: Why Anti-Obama Progressives Have Jumped Aboard the Bernie Sanders Bandwagon
Trevor LaFauci April 12, 2016

Agreements don't make for good television.

Which is why for the past seven years we've also seen a number of progressives jump on this bandwagon. There is money to be made in being a turncoat, and we've seen a number of so-called "progressives" chose to turn their backs on President Obama in an effort to remain relevant as the world passes them by. Among these Democrats-in-name-only are people such as Bill Press, Thom Hartmann, H.A. Goodman, Cornel West, Ben Jealous, and Cenk Uyger just to name a few. This ragtag group of faux liberals have been staples on the media circuit for the sole reason that they present an anomaly: they are all people who should be supporting the president but simply aren't.

So it should come as no surprise that all six of these men have become rabid Bernie Sanders supporters with West and Jealous being official Sanders surrogates, Press, Hartman, and Goodman openly advocating for Sanders with their writings, and Uyger and his team at The Young Turks openly and unapologetically supporting his candidacy. For them, the Sanders campaign is a gold mine: it gives them a chance to bash President Obama as Sanders has continuously done and it also gives them a chance to bash Hillary Clinton, who is not only running on the Obama legacy but is also well on her way to becoming our next president. Which means that once elected, there will be a built-in market for these six men on the cable news shows.
