    Apparently, Fox asked Bernie why he didn't write a check to Uncle Sam to cover the high tax rate that Bernie proposes everyone pay. Bernie replied "Pfft, come on. I paid the taxes that I owe,"

    He thinks everyone but HIM should pay higher taxes.

    Typical liberal.

    Wants everyone else to pay for their stupidness.

    I think he did like annoying would do and paid the taxes required.


    As much as Bernie is a goofball, there is nothing extraordinarily hypocritical about that answer.


    He’s also told leftist who criticize him for his wealth to write a best selling book and they can be wealthy too.


    Don’t like him. Don’t support him. But I can find plenty of criticisms without reaching for sound bites of him admitting he won’t pay taxes that he isn’t required to pay.

    Have to disagree. All these liberals talk about how it is morally wrong for people (particularly the rich, which includes almost all the liberal mouthpieces) not to pay "their fair share" of taxes. They say it is evil for those with money not to pay more.

    If this was just talk about "policy", I would agree with you. But when they talk about it being morally wrong not to pay high taxes, then they should be writing checks. After all, they should be doing things that are morally right.

    That's a full-on facepalm reply, YG.

    Valid question from Fox, and even more valid to question Bernie given the "what's good for me is not for thee" position taken by the now second favorite "Democratic Socialist." Even the comment about becoming wealthy via capitalism raises a completely sensible question about his adherence to the bull he preaches.

    I believe it’s a little more nuanced than that, but don’t think it’s worth the debate. And I don’t want to get in to a position where I feel like I’m on the edge of defending the economic positions of Bernie Sanders :laughing:




    Edit: Got ninja’d, but reply works for both.

    ... to add, many of these types of politicians (not necessary just the n Socialists) will try to push through all sorts of legislation that would serve to lower their net worth if enacted. But they're perfectly cool with reaping the benefits of their drivel in the mean time, and will certainly work to pen exemptions for themselves in the legislation prior to the vote.

    Let me clear that up for you. "I can't figure out how to crawfish out of a really stupid post." :)
