You work hard, stretch every penny, but chances are you pay a higher tax rate than Bernie Sanders. In other words: HE’S EXACTLY LIKE MITT ROMNEY.
The socialist candidate for president released his 2014 federal tax returns on Friday, following weeks of haranguing by the other Democrat presidential candidate under FBI investigation and the media.
The New York Times examined his return and discovered the couple’s income was $205,617 which includes $156,441 in wages and salary and $46.213 from Social Security Benefits. The returns show the couple gave $8,350 to charity and paid $27,653 in federal income taxes.
Socialists hate charity. There’s this from Time’s political reporter Zeke Miller:

But check this out. Apparently, socialism means paying for Bernie’s meals and entertainment expenses:
