    KEEPS YOUR PAWS OFF MY MONEY! Socialist Bernie Sanders Donated Just 1% Of Million-Do



    KEEPS YOUR PAWS OFF MY MONEY! Socialist Bernie Sanders Donated Just 1% Of Million-Dollar Income To Charity

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Socialist from Vermont currently running for president, has a lot of plans for your money.

    He of course advocates free health care for everyone — a wonderful idea we’d all support if we could figure out where we’d get the estimated $33 trillion needed to pay for the program for the first decade. And he wants free college tuition, too, (which comes in at a paltry-by-comparison $50 billion a year).
    To Sanders, people with large salaries are greedy money-grubbers. In his last run for the presidency in 2016, he railed against the “1 Percent,” those in the top slot of annual incomes in America.

    But Ol’ Bernie just happens to be a 1 Percenter, which, according to the Economic Policy Institute, means earning more than $421,926 a year.
    And now it turns out that Uncle Bernie doesn’t much like parting with his bucks.
    In 2016, Sanders hauled in $1,062,626, much of that from a book about his socialist plans if elected president. That year, according to his newly released tax forms, he donated just $10,600 to charity. That makes him a different kind of 1 Percenter — he gave less than 1% of his cool million to charity.
    In 2017, he made $1,131,925, and gave $36,300 to charity — just 3.2%.

    His lowest, according to the forms he released, was 2012, when he donated just .68% of his income. His highest was 2014, when he gave slightly more than 4%.

    Sanders, trying to pressure President Trump into releasing his tax returns, said he’s just been lucky in this land of opportunity. “These tax returns show that our family has been fortunate,” Sanders said in a statement. “I am very grateful for that, as I grew up in a family that lived paycheck to paycheck and I know the stress of economic insecurity.”
    Sanders and his wife’s adjusted gross income in 2018 was $561,293, and they paid an effective tax rate of 26% after deductions. This chart shows that a taxpayer filing jointly would pay a 35% rate on that income, before deductions.
    2014 was even better for Sanders. “Overall, Sanders claimed taxes of $27,653 on his family’s 2014 return. With $31,825 withheld from his Senate pay, that gave the senator a refund of $4,172 that year,” the Motley Fool website wrote. “Taxes of $27,653 on adjusted gross income of $205,271 amount to an effective tax rate of about 13.5%. That shows the importance of itemized deductions for helping higher-income taxpayers reduce their tax rate.”
    Indeed it does. But Sanders wants top earners — like him — to pay more. “As Vermont’s senator and a member of the Budget Committee, I will not support a plan to reduce the deficit that does not call for shared sacrifice,” he wrote in the Burlington Free Press in 2011.
    “At a time when the top one percent earns more income than the bottom 50 percent, we must ask the wealthiest people in this country to start paying their fair share of taxes,” he said. “Every segment of our society, including those who have money and power, must contribute and must sacrifice.”
    Last week, Sanders revealed that he is a millionaire, in part because of his book, “Our Revolution: A Future To Believe In.” “I wrote a best-selling book,” he told the New York Times. “If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.”
    Senators make $174,000 a year, but Vermont magazine “Seven Days” reported in 2016 that Sanders and his wife bought a four-bedroom house on the shore of Lake Champlain in Vermont — with 500 feet of lake frontage — for about $600,000. The Sanders own at least three houses, with another in Burlington, Vermont, and one on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

    Socialists NEVER spend they're own money; they SPEND OTHER PEOPLES MONEY

    Bernie Sanders tells Fox News town hall that he won't pay his 'fair share' in taxes unless he is forced to


    Would you pay attention to moral advice from a clergyman caught in an adulterous relationship who pointed out that adultery is no longer a crime?

    Would you pay attention to the moral advice from a clergyman caught in an adulterous relationship who pointed out that adultery is no longer a crime? And who said that once adultery is re-criminalized in his state, he will start to be faithful to his wife?
    That is the same position taken by Bernie Sanders on taxes, where he has in the past railed against "millionaires and billionaires" who don't pay their fair share, but now that he has earned a million bucks in one year, he is emphasizing only the "billionaire" end of the scale.

    Bret Baier calls out millionaire Bernie Sanders and asks him why he accepted tax breaks when he claims rich people should be taxed more

    Sanders: “Pfft…come on…I am, I paid the taxes that I owe...why don’t you get Donald Trump up here and ask him how much he pays in taxes”

    MacCallum: “So would you be willing to pay 52% on the money that you made? You can volunteer, you can send it back”

    Bernie: “You can volunteer too…why don’t you give? You make more money than I do”

    M: “I didn’t suggest a wealth tax”

    Baier: “And she’s not running for POTUS”

    I give Bernie Sanders credit for daring to appear on Fox News for a town hall in which he could expect pointed questioning from the hosts, Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum. But those expectations were fulfilled when it comes to his taxes. Two tweets from Ryan Saavedra of the Daily Wire tell the story of his position that he will pay his "fair share" only when forced to do the right thing.

    "Fairness" is a moral judgment. Conservatives have let rich lefties off the hook for too long for their insistence that they will follow their own moral guidelines only when forced to.
