“Between 1980 and 2005, 80 percent … 80 percent of all new income in this country went to the top 1 percent. 80 percent!” Bernie Sanders
Don’t forget Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in November, 2016
“Between 1980 and 2005, 80% … 80% of all new income in this country went to the top 1%.”
Eighty percent of all income in this country goes to the richest one percent of the people. “They want more, more, more. Their greed knows no end.” Furthermore, the “top one-tenth of one percent earns 12 cents of every dollar” earned in this country today. Can you believe it?
Bernie Sanders is fair
Sanders admits there are many reasonable and patriotic rich people in this country that want everybody to prosper. But he says there are many others who only want to accumulate more and more money for themselves while poverty increases and the middle class goes away. They also want (and get) more and more tax breaks.
I’m not against rich people. I admire some of them tremendously. I’m well aware that a few of the richest Americans have given away most of their money to help the poor, and I appreciate them very much.
I’m against rich people getting richer and richer while poor people get poorer and poorer. I’m against more and more tax breaks for the one percent of the population who gets 80% of the money.
So is Bernie. That’s why I like him.
That’s not the only reason I like Bernie. I like him because he’s honest. Because he tells it like he sees it. And because he looks out for the little people.
I’m one of those little people, and I appreciate Bernie being on my side.
