Billionaire Mike Bloomberg clashed with Sen. Bernie Sanders during Wednesday night’s fiery debate in Las Vegas; saying America’s “best-known socialist” is a “millionaire with three houses.”
“What a wonderful country we have, the best known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What did I miss here?” asked the former Mayor of New York City.

“Well, I work in Washington… Live in Burlington, and -like thousands of other Vermonters- I do own a summer camp… Forgive me for that,” fired-back Sanders. “Where is your home?”
“New York City, thank you very much, and I pay all my taxes,” said Bloomberg.

AOC: Entire ‘Political System’ in US Rigged Against ‘Working People, Young People, Women, People of Color’
Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stopped by The View Wednesday morning to weigh-in on the 2020 race for the White House; saying the entire “political system” is rigged against “young people” and “women.”
“Our political system is not designed for people like us. They’re not designed for working people to succeed, for young people, for women, for people of color… Rich men are not the center of my universe, working families are,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

Ocasio-Cortez ripped New York Billionaire Mike Bloomberg on social media Thursday; calling for “restorative justice” to heal the wounds from “stop and frisk” police procedures.
“Will people get their records expunged? Will young people sucked into the spiderweb of incarceration get their lives back? Unless there is restorative justice, there is no ‘moving on’ from Stop & Frisk. It’s just a billionaire trying to cover up authoritarian & racist policy,” posted AOC.

Sanders is now tied with former Vice President Joe Biden in the latest national polls; setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown between the two top Democrats ahead of the Iowa Caucus.
“The online poll, released Thursday, shows that 20% of registered Democrats and independents said they would back Sanders over 11 other candidates to run in the general election against President Donald Trump, an increase of 2 percentage points from a similar poll that ran last week,” reports Reuters. “Another 19% supported Biden, 12% said they would vote for Senator Elizabeth Warren, 9% backed former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and 6% said they would support Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana.”
“The poll also shows that about one in five potential primary voters remain undecided. And among those who have picked, nearly two out of three say they are open to changing their minds,” adds the website. “Sanders, an independent who built a national network of fervent supporters while running for the party’s nomination in 2016, has consistently ranked among the most popular candidates since he entered the race.”
