Bernie Sanders is a Marxist. Like the Marxists of old, he wants to control the lives and capital of other people while he lives high on the hog off the capitalists he disparages with every breath.
Bernie’s latest tirade came during his questioning of White House Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney:
“In questioning Mulvaney, Sanders argued the president’s budget handed massive tax breaks to the wealthy through its repeal of the estate tax while at the same time slashing antipoverty programs to the detriment of the working class. ‘The United States today has more income and wealth inequality than any major country on earth,’ Sanders said. He argued Trump’s budget proposal favored the nation’s wealthiest while cutting much-needed programs like Medicaid, Meals on Wheels, and the supplemental nutrition program known as Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).”
There’s not much that’s cut in the budget. What is affected is the rate of growth over time. Democrats call not increasing the rate of growth in a budget a “cut.”
Sanders’ favorite target are members of the Walmart family who are multi-billionaires. Maybe Bernie dislikes the Waltons so much because Walmart heiress Alice Walton donated $353,400 to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Unlike Bernie and his wife, the Waltons made their fortune the old-fashioned way – they earned it by taking enormous risks and delivered a product that tens of millions of consumers embrace without force.
Who is Bernie Sanders to take money from the Waltons and give it to people who did not earn it? Why is this question never asked?
