Sen. Bernie Sanders just released 10 years of his tax returns and they are very telling about the 2020 candidate.
Sanders has long spoken out against the 1% but according to his returns Sanders sits comfortably with that crowd.
The senator and his wife had an adjusted gross income of $561,292 this past 2018. Even by the liberal standards of the Economic Policy Institute this puts the Sanders household in the top earners bracket. EPI shows that families that earn $421,926 or more a year are part of the group.
This will undoubtably come up as Sanders butts heads with President Trump. While releasing the information the senator took some swings appearing on Fox News saying, “why don’t you get Donald Trump up here and ask him how much he pays in taxes? President Trump watches your network a little bit, right? Hey President Trump, my wife and I just released 10 years. Please do the same.”
