Bernie Sanders used to brag about his small donors, noting that his average donor donated a mere $27. In that case, it only took 22,000 donors to help Bernie Sanders buy his new summer home.
Yes, the Socialist candidate who didn’t hold a full time job until his forties and has over $60,000 in credit card debt has a new summer home. The price tag? A mere $600,000 – which is over three times the median home price in America.
Sen. Bernie Sanders has purchased a nearly $600,000 summer retreat on Vermont’s Champlain Islands, the Vermont newspaper Seven Days reported Monday.
“We’ve traveled up to the islands many times over the years — almost always on day trips,” Jane Sanders, the former White House contender’s wife, said in a statement. “The entire family is very excited about it.”
“We’ve always been impressed with the North Hero community, eaten at the North Hero House and Shore Acres and have suggested them to friends who were looking for a beautiful place to stay or have dinner. St. Anne’s Shrine in Isle La Motte is my favorite church and it is nearby.”The Sanders’ new waterfront home has four bedrooms and 500 feet of Lake Champlain beachfront, Seven Days reported.
The Sanders family also owns a row house on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., and a house in Burlington, Vt. The residence in Burlington is currently valued at $321,900, according to city property records.
So he bemoans the top 1%, but has nearly $1 million in real estate assets in his possession. I guess the 1% life is good enough for him – so why not for the rest of us? Because liberals are hypocrites.
Just as they all call for the rich to pay their “fair share” (which is code for “more”) while taking ever tax break available to them, bemoaning the horrors of climate change while flying around on private jets, and call for gun control while surrounded by armed security, the liberal motto seems to be “for me, but not for thee.”
