Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders fantasized about technology mogul Bill Gates paying upwards of $100 Billion per year in taxes; saying the policy would “end homelessness” and provide “safe drinking water to everyone in this country.”
“Say Bill Gates was actually taxed $100 billion. We could end homelessness and provide safe drinking water to everyone in this country. Bill would still be a multibillionaire. Our message: the billionaire class cannot have it all when so many have so little,” posted Sanders on social media.

Sanders unveiled his latest immigration proposal Thursday; calling for the elimination of ICE, a stop in federal deportations, the admission of 50,000 ‘Climate Migrants’ and free healthcare for all.
“My father came to America as a refugee without a nickel in his pocket, to escape widespread anti-Semitism and find a better life,” Sanders said in a press release. “As the proud son of an immigrant, I know that my father’s story is the story of so many Americans today.”
“When I am in the White House we will stop the hatred towards our immigrant brothers and sisters, end family separation, and locking children up in cages. We will end the ICE raids that are terrorizing our communities, and on my first day as president, I will use my executive power to protect our immigrant communities and reverse every single horrific action implemented by Trump,” he said.
“Immigration is not a threat to national security,” his plan says. “It is long past time we break up the Department of Homeland Security and refocus its mission on keeping our country safe and responding effectively to emergencies.”
