Socialist Sanders' tax returns show millionaire status

Bernie Sanders’ campaign escalates feud with top liberal think tank

He declined to do so, disclosing only his tax return for 2014.

Mr Sanders's tax returns show he is among the top 1pc of earners in the USA, which some critics argue undermines his calls for an economy and government that works for everyone, not just the 1pc.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA, who has also made anti-corruption a key focus of her campaign, reported the next highest income out of the six Democrats who have released at least a decade of returns, showing an adjusted gross income between her and her husband of over $846,000. With her increased appearances on the right-leaning network in the past month, however, it does make one wonder how the president, who is said to watch Fox News daily, is just now taking notice of Brazile. Sanders said to the moderators. The Sanders campaign promised early in his candidacy this cycle that he would release his financial records. "Please do the same".

Democratic presidential contender Sen.

Next came his Fox News town hall, an event for which he was criticized in some corners in the left.

According to the Economic Policy Institute, families in the U.S. earning $421,926 or more a year are part of this group.

"I consider paying more in taxes as my income rose to be both an obligation and an investment in our country", he added. "And by the way, why don't you get Donald Trump up here and ask him how much he pays in taxes?"

Taxes paid: $697,611, or 37%. "When you wrote the book and made the money, isn't that the definition of capitalism and the American dream?" asked Baier.

"Fair question", Sanders responded.

Sanders promoted his proposals for free public-college tuition and a "Medicare for All" government-run health program and defended democratic socialism as a system to create a government and economy "that works for all".

The audience again cheered what Sanders had proposed, and the Vermont senator's campaign wasted little time in posting the exchange to social media. Sanders cited two posts about him by ThinkProgress, a website run by CAP's political arm, and past pieces focused on Sens. Gillibrand was the first candidate to release her 2018 tax returns, and her campaign released a video in which she called on other candidates to join her.
