HYPOCRITE: Socialist Bernie Sanders Has 3 Houses, Makes Millions

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., entered the 2020 presidential race this week promising to transform America with a left-wing vision of economic and environmental justice. But the self-described democratic socialist’s high-end income, multiple houses and fondness for air travel have already opened him up to criticism that his lifestyle doesn’t always match the rhetoric.

Sanders has pitched himself as a grassroots economic populist, focusing on income inequality and higher taxes for the rich.

“Our campaign is about transforming our country and creating a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice,” he said.

“Together you and I and our 2016 campaign began the political revoution,” he said. “Now it is time to complete that revolution and implement the vision that we fought for.”

But Sanders has raised eyebrows over his spending and personal wealth. Notably, he owns three houses. In 2016, he bought a $575,000 four-bedroom lake-front home in his home state. This is in addition to a row house in Washington D.C., as well as a house in Burlington, Vermont.

The multiple homes, bring into question past statements — like when he asked in 2017: “How many yachts do billionaires need? How many cars do they need? Give us a break. You can’t have it all.”

  1. This is nothing new for the left. They preach to us but never follow suit in their own personal life. Case in point: Al Gore flies around the world in his private jet talking about carbon emissions. In addition to cooling and heating his 16,000 square foot house while screaming that WE are bringing about the end of the world because we dare to oppose his view of climate change. Pelosi, Obama, and others on the left build these huge walls around their compounds while telling us that we shouldn’t have walls protecting our country. So Bernie and his hypocrisy doesn’t surprise me.

  2. Lots of Congress members and Senators own two houses – one in Washington, one in their districts/states. Liberals are not opposed to capitalism or the accumulation of wealth, they/we just think they should pay their fair share of taxes.

  3. Tired of their lying nonsense. I once had 2 house to live in, and now I have to rent and pay high money for a house that is not being taken care of. If I want it fix I pay and do it or I live in a dump like environment. I don’t care if bernie has 10 house; it does not change my life status one bit. The thing I hate is when big mouth pelosi is against the wall but her house has walls all around. We are told from the Torah don’t coven somebody else’s donkey, or his property. I am not a tzaddick, my car is 21 years old so what. By pelosi having a brand new one is not going to affect whether I having a new car or not. I am going to lease a new car this car to up grade. Stupid democrat from New York is trying to tell everybody what they are going to have or not have. I don’t want a free house, I want what I work for and like wise everybody should do like wise. Free college are you kidding I paid for part of mine and all of my 7 children. If Hashem gives me strength i I pay for my Great grandchildens education
