Note also that there was outrage over Mitt Romney’s effective tax rate of 14-15%, but Bernie is paying even less.[/I]

I don't see an issue. Nor do I see anyone's worth as a positive or negative regarding the ability to lead the country.

I think this is a non issue.
Bernie built his political career railing against millionaires and billionaires with special bile for people who inherited wealth. Of course he claims millionaires and billionaires ought to pay their "fair share" of taxes including inheritance tax. Yet as Bernie has become wealthy from the public payroll and now from inheritance has he voluntarily pain more taxes than required? Nope. But when Bernie the champion of those victimized by the rigged system inherits a fortune, he buys a big beach house for himself.

Of course to the Bernie cult follower his blatant hypocrisy is a nonissue. Socialism is not for the socialist, peddle promises of freebies to the masses while lining their pockets, like Bernie.

Hillary made her money by giving speeches pleasing to Wall Street. Trump earned his in the hyper competitive NY real estate market. You can see the difference between them and con man Bernie, can't you?

Bernie and Hillary are so alike. Both have questionable careers in politics with very questionable careers prior to politics that expose their hypocrisies.

Bernie did smut articles before he wormed his way in to politics (via his parents influence) He was forty before he ever gat a real paycheck. Let's just say his presidency would have been ,,,uh ,,,,novel.
Bernie Sanders a Bum Who Didn't Earn His First Steady Paycheck Until Age 40 Then Wormed His Way Into Politics

Bernie was a big tax proponent.

Shocking when you connect the dots. Try.

And Bernie pays his taxes so there are no dots to connect.
