Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have been chastised by the “superyacht” class, who have so much more than others while many live paycheck to paycheck. After hearing enough of their criticism, Elon Musk’s mother, Maye Musk, hauled them to the woodshed of reality the other day. But, for the time being, Senator Sanders has shifted his focus to the superyacht class.
Sanders’ net worth is believed to be $3 million, which includes real estate, assets and a large government pension. He has also made money from three books, the most recent is his 2016 best-seller, “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In.” Sanders told the New York Times, “You can be a millionaire if you publish a best-selling book.”
People don’t care if Bernie Sanders’ net worth is $3 million, $30 million or $300 million. And don’t care how many properties he owns or where they are located, his investment portfolio’s asset allocation or anything else about his riches. It is the United States. Like every other American, Sanders has the right to make as much money (legally) as he wants and amass as much wealth as he wants.
Moreover, left-wingers are hardwired to believe that everything in life is a zero-sum game. It indicates that the more one individual obtains or retains, the fewer others can get. The following Bernie tweet from Saturday, in which he complains about “the rich class” and their superyachts, is an excellent example. Make sure to have enough money that people earn that they want to take.
Therefore Sanders sought to blend two circumstances to be mutually inclusive. He believed they must be comparable, but this is not the case. “Working-class people” build and manufacture the pricey items they purchase, as well as everything else. Bernie, the word is “manufacturing jobs.” Recognizing the aforementioned out loud is a breach of the left-wing narrative. It disproves the zero-sum argument.
