Sanders On Millionaire Status: ‘I Didn’t Know It Was A Crime To Write A Good Book’

Sen. Bernie Sanders on Saturday pushed back against criticism he received after saying this week that he is a millionaire.

“I didn’t know that it was a crime to write a good book, which turned out to be a best-seller,” the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told a crowd in Gary, Ind.

“I don’t apologize for writing a book that was No. 3 on The New York Times best-seller [list],” he added but reiterated his belief in a “progressive tax system which demands that the wealthiest people in this country finally start paying their fair share in taxes.”

“If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too,” he told the New York Times.

  1. “If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too,” he (Sanders) told the New York Times.

    Under the current situation, yes. If Sanders and co get into office you will pay so much taxes that you can’t be sure.

    Sanders just doesn’t get it.

    For a demagogue like him who runs such an “us against them” campaign with regard to the wealthy people, yes there is something wrong with his accumulation of so much undistributed wealth

  2. The crime according to Bernie is to be a millionaire. Now that he wrote a book and made millions it’s time to distribute the wealth.

  3. It’s not a crime if your a Democrat. It’s only when you’re a Republican that it’s a crime. Only Democrats are allowed to make millions.

  4. It’s not a crime if your a Democrat. It’s only when you’re a Republican that it’s a crime. Only Democrats are allowed to make millions.

  5. That’s right global warming is only a problem if Conservatives do it but democrats conveniently know how “to offset the carbon footprint “ bla bla bla
