Bernie Sanders Releases Tax Returns in Run-up to 2020

All Aboard the Obama Nostalgia Train

During the second hour of Tuesday night's CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, the host discussed one of Trump's latest attacks on Sanders, a late-evening tweet that restated the premise of one of the Fox News town hall questions that Sanders was asked.

During a town hall Monday with Bernie Sanders, anchor Bret Baier asked the audience a question about insurance.

"We pay for what we're proposing, unlike the President of the United States", he said, adding later: "In terms of Medicare for All, we are paying for that by eliminating as I said before, deductibles and premiums".

The surge by Sanders is indicative of a hard-left shift within the Democratic Party. Still, even considering the temporal quality of anything and everything at this point in the cycle, Bernie Sanders woke up Monday morning and had himself a day.

The event that so irked President Donald Trump and FNC primetime star Sean Hannity thumped its cable news competition combined in both metrics.

"When you wrote the book and made the money, isn't that the definition of capitalism and the American dream?" That makes him the third-highest earning Democratic candidate this year, behind Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren.

The campaign noted that Sanders paid a 26 percent effective tax rate previous year, but in 2016 and 2017, when he earned more than $1 million, he paid rates of 35 and 30 percent respectively.

Climate change protesters block roads in London
Environmental protesters smashed the windows of oil company Shell's headquarters in London and several people have been arrested. We wish to make peace with ourselves by making peace with our neighbour Earth and with our God", he said. "We must act now".

In a statement released by his campaign, Sanders noted that while the returns show his family is fortunate, he also grew up with a "stress of income insecurity" that informs his political views.

In 2014, prior to his first presidential run, he reported an income with his wife of about US$206,000, according to his tax returns.

"Pfft, come on. I paid the taxes that I owe", Sanders shot back.

Mr Trump has in the past said that he is unable to release his tax returns because they were being audited by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

The Sanders campaign said those rates do not reflect charitable proceeds given from one of his books, which he did not deduct from his taxes.

In 2016, a major attraction for his strong cohort of young voters was his promise of free tuition at all public colleges and universities, paid for with a new tax on Wall Street trades. "If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too". Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota released 12 years of tax returns through 2017 earlier this month.

Governor Jay Inslee of Washington released 12 years of tax returns, showing that he and his wife earned US$202,912 last year.

"I don't think it's a problem that someone has been successful in the private sector", said Sullivan, who supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primary.
