Let's see, $600K not reported on his disclosure filing materializes just in time for him to buy a third home and hit the road for Hillary Clinton and now a huge windfall from his upcoming book. Of course he is not in the top 1%, just the top 4%, so it's all good.

I doubt that Bernie did not disclose his income.

I think the Bernster should give away 90% of his book money like he proposed for other peeps.

Kindly quote where he proposed somebody else "give away 90% of their book money" ...
Or anything resembling that.

Sanders during the election never stated categorically that he wanted to raise taxes to 90%. However he never denied that he wanted to raise taxes, yet never released his tax plan.

That said we find that Sanders did like high taxes in a paper he wrote:

Quote:
In a 1974 article titled “Concentrated Wealth Is Causing Economic Illness,” from an unidentified newspaper that was in his papers at the University of Vermont library, Sanders is described as wanting to “make it illegal to amass more wealth than a human family could use in a lifetime.” He would do that, the article said, with “a 100 percent tax on incomes above this level ($ one million per year)” and “would recycle this money for the public need.”

Had Bernie won there is no telling how high he would have raised taxes. All we know for sure is that he would have killed the economy with his tax plan.
