For the past century, one thing has been true for those who pushed a nation into socialism.
The socialistic rules, regulations and restrictions apply only to the common folk, not to themselves.
Obama pushed socialism, including spreading the wealth, but after doubling his worth while in the White House, we don’t see him spreading his wealth.
In fact, the only wealth spreading we saw under Obama was spreading what little the poor and middle-income people had to government.
Sen. Bernie Sanders has not hidden the fact that he is a socialist.
He is also a champion of socialist climate change, but a new report shows that Sanders has a massive carbon footprint, proving he says one thing and then does the opposite.
Legal Insurrection – Climate Change Champion Bernie Sanders Has Massive Carbon Footprint – The only thing Bernie Sanders likes more than vilifying ‘millionaires and billionaires’ is talking about the imminent danger of climate change. He has frequently lambasted President Trump and Republicans for failing to take the issue seriously.
But now we learn that like many people on the left, Bernie has a massive carbon footprint, especially when it comes to air travel.
Louis Casiano reports at FOX News:
“Bernie Sanders spent nearly $300G on private air travel in October: reports”
“Bernie Sanders is so concerned about climate change that he spent nearly $300,000 on private air travel in October so he could speak to audiences in nine battleground states prior to November’s midterm elections.”
“The independent U.S. senator from Vermont also used the opportunity to test the waters for a potential 2020 presidential run, according to reports.” …
Don’t forget that Sanders is also a huge supporter of free Medicare or healthcare for all.
Analysis of his free healthcare shows it will cost at least $3 trillion a year, nearly the annual budget of the United States.
In order to pay for Sanders free socialist healthcare, it would mean that every taxpayer (approx. 142 million) would have to fork up around $21,127 a year in additional taxes.
Socialists like Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez promise free this and that, but not how to pay for the FREE stuff, which is why I equate socialism to a dangerous and deadly mousetrap.
