Lefties believe it's immoral to be a millionaire or a billionaire until they become one.
Flashback to Bernie Sanders in 1971.
"Liberty Union candidate Bernard Sanders says it's a national disgrace that half the members of the U.S. Senate are millionaires.
"Sanders, who is running for a U.S. Senate seat from Vermont, said it seems "immoral" to him that millionaires represent the people of their state."
Bernie also proposed replacing the salary for members of Congress with the average income for their home state. Funny how we haven't heard anything more about that from him in quite a while.
In Raise Taxes on Everyone Richer Than Me, I noted that Bernie had also called for a 100% tax on wealth over a million. That one also seems to have slipped his mind.
Bernie is making it clear that he’s no longer opposed to millionaires. After all he’s part of the 1%. His latest tax proposal is named the "For the 99.8 Percent Act". Forget the 99%. After making a few million, Bernie is shaving off .2% to make room for him and other struggling socialist millionaires fighting the influence of wealth and power by those who, as of right now, have more of it than he does.
“We are the 99.8%,” is the new fractional message of the fractional candidate.
The proposal starts with estates of $3.5 million. Bernie’s own fortune is estimated at $2.5 million.
The theme here is, “Tax everyone richer than me.” The old socialist still believes it’s a crime to make too much money. He just upgraded his estimate of what too much money is. $2.5 million is just right. But when you’ve got $3.5 million, then you’re suddenly a capitalist oppressor of the proletariat.
Bernie isn't a man of principle. He's a hypocritical fanatic with a deep reserve of transaction expediency.
