I'm not attacking him or being sarcastic. He actually could. He has the money.

That would undermine the Democratic tradition of using Other People's Money (like mine!) to solve problems...not gonna happen.

Just like Bernie Sanders should give up his 3 mansions and a good portion of his money since he keeps attacking the wealthy and screaming about how they must share with the poor! All big talkers.,,

But he's explained his three homes! He works in Washington, lives in VT, and come on, a lot of regular people have a vacation cabin. Or something like that.
Anyway, billionaires bad, milllionaires better.

Maybe Bernie should do away with compounding interest...after all, some of those bad billionaires were ok millionaires at some point...

That can be another plank in his platform that he can walk off of...(sorry grammarians)

The difference between a millionaire and a billionaire is far greater than the difference between a millionaire and an average person.

I think this is an exaggeration unless you can prove otherwise.
What makes something a mansion?

One of his houses I saw was not a mansion. It was small little vacation home. Even his main home is smaller and less grand then many Lakewood homes.

Has Sanders suggested that he would be exempt from any taxes that he imposes?

What about Steyer?

Its not other people's money when you're paying along with everyone else.

In any case, a very substantial number of women here are millionaires.

Not a day goes by that there's not a discussion of purchasing million dollar or more houses in Brooklyn, Lakewood and Monsey. Spending $40,000 to more to renovate a kitchen because its more than 10 years old. The "need" for a separate kitchen for 8 days of the year. Spending tens of thousands of dollars a year to "support" adult children.

Sanders' main residence cost him about $400,000, and is now worth about $465,000. How does that compare to Lakewood home prices?

He has a one bedroom condo in DC.

His house doesn’t look like a house ofvthe rich and famous. It’s a regular large colonial with a garage.
