Many of you saw Bernie Sanders tax returns that were released a few days ago. Now, let me just be clear about a couple of things. First, I think everyone should maximize their tax deductions. I don't think you should pay one red cent more in taxes than you should. Second, I think what you give to charity is between you and you. If you want to keep 100% of what you make and say screw everybody else that's your business.
With that said Here are the highlights from Bernie Sanders Return:
205,000 in income
Here's the problem I have with Bernie. This is a guy who says you don't pay enough. He says you deserve, (heck you have a right) to all kinds of free stuff that other more successful and prosperous people should be paying for it.
But when it comes to his own pocketbook he isn't charitable. He isn't paying extra money into the system. Instead, we find he maximizes his own deductions to pay as little in taxes as he possibly can and then gives very little of his own income away to the very people he claims deserve it.
In truth, he's just like every other progressive liberal you meet. He's extremely generous with other people's money but stingy with his own.
From there we'll move on the threats coming from the Saudi government to dump billions in U.S. bonds onto the market if we release the 28 pages of documents that may implicate them in the 9/11 attack.
Also in the stack today is a machine being developed by the evil corporate giant GE that can turn C02 into energy. Yep, you got that right, we may be moving into an era where C02 is powering every home in America. Maybe we shouldn't be so quick to buy into all the global warming fears.
It's a great show today. Thanks so much for listening and don't forget to subscribe.
