Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders stated while campaigning in 1971 that it is “immoral” that members of Congress are millionaires, according to a local newspaper article uncovered by CNN’s KFile.
Sanders told the Bennington Banner, a regional daily newspaper, he believes that the millionaires who purport to represent the people actually represent the interests of “their fellow millionaires,” which he asserts are “corporations and big business.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“Yes, it is true,” Josh Orton, Sanders’s campaign spokesman, told CNN. “Senator Sanders said in the 1970s that it is immoral that the government too often represents the interests of the super-wealthy and large corporations — and yes, it is also true that Senator Sanders has continued to demand a change from that for his entire life.”
Sanders released 10 years of his tax returns in April, showing he earned an adjusted gross income of $1,062,626 in 2016, $1,131,925 in 2017 and $561,293 in 2018.
Bernie Sanders harshly criticized the wealth of US senators during his first campaign for office in 1971, calling it “immoral” that half the members of the Senate were millionaires, per @KFILE @natemcdermott https://t.co/WdkHFA50lN
