Bernie Sanders’ Ignorant Comments About Trump’s Taxes
Bernie Sanders complained to the Washington Post about Trump not paying enough to pay for infrastructure.
“You’ve got the middle-class people working longer hours for low wages — they pay their taxes, they support their schools, they support their infrastructure, they support the military,” Senator Bernie Sanders said on CNN’s State of the Union. “Trump goes around and says: ‘Hey, I’m worth billions! I’m a successful businessman! And I don’t pay any taxes. But you — you make 15 bucks an hour — you pay the taxes, not me.’”
For a guy who loves big government, one wonders if he actually knows anything about how government works. Trump paid loads of state and local taxes, and that’s where the vast majority of infrastructure financing comes from. Back when I was a young socialist, socialists were the smart ones. Now they’re fact-deprived bigmouths. I “debated” Bernie Sanders on CNBC several years ago. He just shouted slogans. Not much has changed.
