Bernie "we need to take trucks off the road and replace them with trains, look, I have a model train in my big DC office."

This evil coward Bernie wants to give you crumbs will he lives the good life. He is a gate keeper that wants to keep blacks down and angry. How do you people not notice this?

You can be like Yang and put your money were your mouth is and use it to show that his policies would work. What about that.

Bernie talking about his going back to making only $173,000.00 per year as a Senator is ridiculous to all of us small people out here working as the "middle class."

https://fee.org/articles/the-truth-about-amazon-s-tax-bill/ As a small business owner, I can testify the large amount of taxes borne by the owners that people who don't own a business never see. There is property tax, personal property tax, business income tax, unemployment tax, Medicare withholding match, Social Security withholding match, Franchise tax, the list goes on and on. The tax breaks that were written and passed by Congress that have benefitted companies both large and small have still been of benefit for the average citizen. I'm sorry, but my husband and I work our ass off 7 days a week sometimes from 7:30 in the morning to late at night and we don't get a refund at the end of the year. But I don't complain about that. What really chaps me is the people who work 1 or 2 part time shifts a week and are on government assistance of any sort and file for a "refund" and get "back" $3700.00. This is not a refund. It is coming directly out of my pocket and your pocket. The government has no money of their own...just ours. People talking about the "poor" not benefitting from the tax cuts: they are already benefitting. A program that requires welfare recipients to work for their benefits is what I believe is needed. We should at least be receiving a partial return on our money spent on welfare programs.

Let me explain this to you, CNN Becoming a millionaire through your own hard work = good Becoming a millionaire through exploration of others and their hard work = bad Having enough wealth to influence a majority of lawmakers and un-democratize our political system = EXTREMELY BAD

Without even watching this clip he has no right To say anything about the millionaires when you don't even pay your staff the $15.00 an hour wage that you have slammed others about. You are a typical socialist. Everyone do as I say and not as I do. Hypocrite. Then you have the nerve to not pay them the very wage you are ouch get for. Instead of paying them for their hours now you cut their hours. You will never ever get a vote from me again. Kick rock you POS

Democrats will make all education free including super expensive masters courses and all medical expenses and all transportation costs and basic food and housing costs free for all 👍👍👍👍 so no need to pay for any loans . Only wealthy people will companies will pay taxes 👍 America will become the land of the free with free education for all . And CNN can come up with a list of other things that should be made free for all . That’s fantastic

Look at this bull shit. After berines first town hall this year with CNN, they made sure not to bring in berine supporters this time around. They don’t want anyone to clip there hands cheering for berine. So the people at home will say hmmmm looks like no one agrees with berine anymore. This is becoming sickening, I just wish berine would start to call them out. I’m getting sick of this. They all want trump out, but I’ll tell you this because they didn’t learn from 2016, I and my family will be the one that votes for trump again if the fuck berine over again.
