Sanders Campaign Launches 'Emergency' Fundraiser to Combat NYT Report

Sanders Campaign Launches 'Emergency' Fundraiser to Combat NYT Report

"Maya MacGuineas, the president of independent and bipartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, warned on "Fox and Friends" Tuesday morning that Bernie Sanders' proposed policies could cost $20,000 per taxpayer", reports Fox News.

One particular moment from the event that has gotten some attention online, including over at The Hill, is when co-host Bret Baier asked the largely Sanders-sympathetic audience if they'd support the senator's "Medicare For All" plan. President Trump watches your network a little bit, right?

The potential that Sanders will be the last candidate standing is "spooking establishment-aligned Democrats", the NYT concludes.

But Lemon stepped in to defend Sanders, noting that "Bernie Sanders only rails against the 1% who don't pay their share". However, Brock concedes that an effort to prevent Sanders from winning the nomination backed by big-money Democrats could potentially be exploited for the democratic socialist's political gain. Sanders has made a lot of money, but he is certainly not on the take - and he will not hesitate to raise his own taxes if he gets a chance.

"Looks like President Trump is scared of our campaign". Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) would carry a hefty price tag for each individual taxpayer. They showed that in 2016 and 2017, he earned more than one million dollars in revenue from his books (it dipped this year), and predictably, some outlets-the Times again, of course-exploited the "Sanders is part of the one percent!" angle.

Sanders past year made $110 in music royalties, presumably for his 1987 folk album, "We Shall Overcome", and an additional $1,810 from his 1997 memoir, "Outsider in the House", which was published by Verso.

Rep. Ilhan Omar says she has experienced increase in death threats
Trump, instead, lambasted the Speaker for her lack of "control" over Omar and her "anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and ungrateful U.S. Minnesota's Ilhan Omar said the threats were sparked by "violent rhetoric", accusing Mr Trump of stoking right-wing extremism.

"There's a growing realization that Sanders could end up winning this thing, or certainly that he stays in so long that he damages the actual victor", said Brock, who backed Hillary Clinton's failed presidential bids in 2008 and 2016.

Nor is there any suggestion that Sanders would moderate his anti-plutocratic politics to benefit him personally.

The effective rates and income both represent substantial increases from 2014, which was the previous year of tax returns publicly released by the candidate, when he earned $205,617 and paid a 13.4% effective rate.

Taxes paid: $697,611, or 37%.

The US$1.7m ($2.5m) puts them in America's highest income brackets, according to tax returns released by the presidential candidate today.

Defending the earnings, he said: "Anyone who thinks I should apologize for writing a bestselling book, I'm sorry, I'm not going to do it". He made no apologies for his financial well-being, telling the New York Times recently that "if you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too".
