Bernie Sanders weighed-in following Wednesday night’s Democratic Debate on an issue settled long ago; bizarrely demanding that 18-year-olds have the right to vote in the United States.

“If you’re 18, you should have the right to vote. End of discussion,” posted Sanders ons social media immediately after the event.

 

His comments confused millions of Twitter followers, with one writing “There’s a debate?”

“I was 18 when I voted, I didn’t know this was a problem?” added another.

ADD IT TO THE LIST: Fading Bernie Unveils His $2.5 TRILLION ‘Housing for All’ Plan, Calls for Tax Hikes

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.18.19

Fading Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders unveiled his “Housing for All” plan Wednesday; calling for $2.5 trillion in new spending to expand government programs for low-income Americans.

“In the richest country in the history of the world, every American must have a safe, decent, accessible, and affordable home as a fundamental right,” writes Sanders. “For more than 40 years, we have had an affordable housing crisis in America that has only gotten worse. In America today, over 18 million families are paying more than 50 percent of their income on housing, while last year alone the five largest banks on Wall Street made a record-breaking $111 billion in profits.”

“If we are serious about addressing the affordable housing crisis, we need to build millions of apartments and homes throughout the country that will remain affordable in perpetuity to prevent displacement and serve future generations. And when we do that, we will create millions of good-paying jobs in the process,” adds Bernie.

The new proposal calls for $1.48 trillion to “build, rehabilitate, and preserve” affordable housing across the United States.

It calls for an additional $400 billion to construct 2 million new “units” and $500 million for “development in rural areas.”

BAN BILLIONAIRES! AOC Says ‘No Person Should Have a Billion Dollars’ in the United States

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.03.19

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed wealthy Americans on social media this week; saying “no person should have a billion dollars” in the United States of America.

“‘Billionaires should not exist’ does not mean certain people should not exist. It means no person should have a billion dollars. The ascent of billionaires is a symptom & outcome of an immoral system that tells people affordable insulin is impossible but exploitation is fine,” posted AOC on Twitter.

Sen. Bernie Sanders made similar statements last month.

“Billionaires should not exist,” he stated on social media. “There should be no billionaires. We are going to tax their extreme wealth and invest in working people.”

“In order to reduce the outrageous level of inequality that exists in America today and to rebuild the disappearing middle class, the time has come for the United States to establish an annual tax on the extreme wealth of the top 0.1 percent of U.S. households,” Sanders writes. “This wealth tax would only apply to net worth of over $32 million and would raise an estimated $4.35 trillion over the next decade. Anyone who has a net worth of less than $32 million would not see their taxes go up at all under this plan.”

“The tax rate would increase to 2 percent on net worth from $50 to $250 million, 3 percent from $250 to $500 million, 4 percent from $500 million to $1 billion, 5 percent from $1 to $2.5 billion, 6 percent from $2.5 to $5 billion, 7 percent from $5 to $10 billion, and 8 percent on wealth over $10 billion. These brackets are halved for singles,” adds Bernie.
