Bernie Sanders Confirms He's Now a Millionaire

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is the highest polling candidate now in the 2020 Democratic primary field.

Sanders declared his soon-to-be released tax returns would be "boring" and didn't deny his millionaire status in an interview with the New York Times.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) acknowledged he was a millionaire Tuesday and credited it to his large book sales, telling the world, "If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too".

In January, Sanders was a top choice of 23%, and Biden was pick of 32%; Warren had 15% support of those voters at that time.

The team said single-game ticket information will be announced later this month after the regular season schedule is announced. Kickoff for the nationally televised game against the Saints is set for 1:00pm PT on Sunday , August 18, and will air on CBS.

"We are going to release 10 years of our tax returns, and we hope that on that day Donald Trump will do the same", he also said. "April 15, 2019, will be the 10th year, so I think you will see them", he said.

Anyone find it odd that this 2020 Democratic candidate hasn't credited capitalism - at least publicly - for all that extra money in his pocket?

Sanders has faced criticism on the campaign trail for failing to release his past tax returns in full, and has increasingly been compared to President Donald Trump, who has conspicuously broken with executive convention by failing to release his own taxes. Sanders released his 2014 tax return showing that he earned just over $200,000. His Senate salary is $174,000 per year.

It's always about Trump: Sanders repeatedly mentions Pres. Trump when asked about his tax returns, attempting to create separation between the two politicians who have not released their returns. He published another book, Where We Go From Here, in 2018.
