Sen Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., 2020 presidential entered to transform the race this week, promising that America is a left-wing vision of economic and ecological justice. But the self-proclaimed democratic, socialist, high-end income, several homes and a penchant for air travel, already it is not open to the criticism that his lifestyle always match the rhetoric.

Sanders has pitched as a basis for democratic economic populist focus on income inequality and higher taxes for the rich.


“Our campaign is about change in our country and the creation of a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and ecological justice,” he said.

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

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

“In Bern will keep to his house in Burlington, and you are using the new camp season,” Vermont reported Seven days in 2016.

The several houses, though, bringing into question the statements of the past-such as when he asked, in 2017: “How many yachts the billionaires have to do? How many vehicles do you need? Give us a break. You can’t have everything.”

Sanders has also earned more than $1 million per year in the last few years, but he remains at the lower end of the Senate-Democrats in relation to the net value.


VTDigger reported in may that more than $1 million in the year 2017 — $885,767 of which came from advances and royalties for his book “Our Revolution” on his failed 2016 presidential candidacy. It is the second time he’s about this height, more than a million in 2016.

Bernie Sanders acquired this waterfront cottage in the Lake Champlain island community of North Hero, Vermont. The historic four-bedroom house was built in 1920 and sits on 1.1 hectares of land.

In spite of that, according to Forbes, he is one of the lowest net values among future presidential candidates, with an estimated value of around $ 700,000, according to Forbes. For comparison with other Democrats, ladies and left-hot porn sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has an estimated value of approximately $ 7.8 million.

But the conservatives have pointed out that Sanders’ lifestyle as a contradiction, given his tax-the-rich mantra.

“That’s why you’ll be working as a limousine liberal” Americans for tax reform President Grover advocacy group he said on Fox Business Network “in the evening on a Tuesday. “You have enough money. You can imagine, spending other people’s money.”

“His health care plan, he admits, will cost it $32 trillion. He wants an 8 percent across-the-board tax on peoples’ wages, which is only $12 trillion dollars—an 8 percent pay cut for all, to pay for his health plan [and] it pays for only a third,” he said. “You can put out the endless series of tax increases and regulations that you are looking for, introduce you to.”

But other parts of your lifestyle are in control, specifically, to limit when compared to his calls, the pollution of the environment and also to distribute the wealth of the “millionaires and billionaires.”

In October, he spent almost $ 300,000 on the air transport, so that he could speak to audiences in nine battleground States before the November mid-term elections. This from a candidate who affirms that a Green New Deal, which seeks to dramatically reduce (if not eliminate entirely) in the air.


Sanders’ team allegedly bought nearly $5,000 in carbon-offsets to balance the emissions from the trip to VTDigger. A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions to compensate for emissions elsewhere.

On the same day his campaign jet paid to the company, Sanders has called climate change a “planetary crisis” in a tweet.

As Sanders announced his presidential candidacy, he has received a new wave of criticism from conservatives, with commentator Charlie Kirk quipping: “For a committed socialist, he is love sure seems to be, to live like a capitalist.”

Other parts of his family, the negotiations are likely to see more control. The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday focused again on the controversy surrounding Bernie’s wife, Jane Sanders, and her time as President of Burlington College.

The College closed in the year 2016, citing the enormous debt accumulated while Sanders was in charge — in particular, if the University is a 10-million-Dollar-real-estate-business. Federal investigators examined whether Jane Sanders committed promised to bank fraud by inflating the amount of money to the donors by the school-but investigators reportedly concluded the investigation and brought no charges.

Vermont Republicans have tried to tie the controversy to Bernie Sanders.

“If you had been Jane Doe instead of Jane Sanders, she would never have managed this loan, it would never have survived, the most basic underwriting” Vermont Republican party Vice Chairman Brady Toensing said on “Fox & Friends” on Thursday.


Response on “Fox & Friends” request for comment, Bernie 2020 Senior consultant Jeff Weaver said: “These false accusations began with a politically motivated complaint from trump in 2016, the Vermont Chairman. Jane said from the beginning, you did nothing wrong and are pleased that the investigation came to an end, months.”

“It is no coincidence, after Bernie Sanders’ record-breaking fundraising in the first days of his campaign, Fox News is a journeyman with the throw up false attacks from Trump’s spit,” he said.

But The Wall Street Journal claimed that the saga, as well as reports, paid between 2009 and 2011, the school more than $328,000 to enroll students in a woodworking school run by Mrs Sanders’ daughter, “shows the financial incompetence and a tendency to cronyism.”

“Sounds like a lot, socialism,” the editorial said.
