Isn't that the very root of his purity test that you can't accept donations? Because that evil money corrupts?

He can be part of the 1% and not be affected, but other candidates can't accept legal donations because that corrupts?

As I always suspected.. a huge hypocrite and empty suit.

14. The returns were presumably (we've been told by the Sanders) prepared using Turbotax...

 

...which is what I've been using since the early 2000s myself.

It appears that two of the entries on page six are not the original entries - they're a different font and larger than all the others.

Pages 9 and 10 are scans of printed pages, not the pdf pages as prepared by Turbotax.

Again, I have been using Turbotax for almost 20 years, when saving the final return Turbotax generates a pdf file of all the forms.

22. Well, not all the entries are the same size and font and they have decimals....

 

...which are truncated by Turbotax, and two of the pages are not the original pages generated by the software.

I don't know why, but 2016 would be the most scrutinized of all the years.

23. It looks like they didn't know how to create more than one schedule C

 

on Turbotax ... so they did the second one manually.

The numbers have been carried forward to 1040 accurately but they must have had to override the calculation from the recording artist Sched C.

28. Turbotax automatically asks the user to enter a second schedule C. It it was done manually....

 

....many of the totals elsewhere in the return would be incorrect. That's the beauty of Turbotax, it doesn't the thinking for the user and asks at the end of each category "do you want to enter another business" (Schedule C is the business expense or loss schedule)

George what happened to your vow that you were going to no longer deal in innuendo and Bernie Sanders conspiracy theories? Why are you always casting aspersions on the leading Democratic contender? It's nonsense like this that probably contributed to some Bernie supporters choosing not to vote for our nominee last year against Trump. Please don't repeat the same mistake twice.

millionaires need alot of millions to be in the 1%. Alot of people nearing retirement will have assets in the $1 million range. Add in a house and some other assets and you're there. Not sure exactly where he is, probably inside of 10%, possibly inside 5%. I'm dubious he's in the 1%.

HE attacks because other candidates accept LEGAL campaign donations from LEGAL sources, and intimates that they are corrupt because of that money,

BUT HE can be in the 1%, hiding it for as long as he could, all while doing publicity stunts in coach on select flights..

Fake.. fraud.. hypocrite.. empty suit.

I remember when people ripped Hillary apart because of some of the companies that she was invested in, despite that it was very unlikely that she invested the money herself, it was likely done on an annual returns schedule that she worked out with the company that managed her money. It least she released ALL of her returns showing what she was invested in.

None of those things have a chance in hell to be enacted into law. Those are simply manipulative slogans to make gullible people vote for him.

I see a similarity -- "The wall" comes to mind.

119. Even if you don't care about his financial transparency, as a Dem candidate, it matters.

 

Trump supporters say that they don't care about Trump's tax returns.

It doesn't mean that there's nothing relevant in them to others.

84. 1,2 or even 3 mill does not put a person in the 1%. It makes him wealthy and in the upper,

 

upper middle class but todays 1% are those that earn 25 Mill + a year. I don't disparage him for being a millionaire. It just makes him richer than many of us but nowhere near the rich "elite".

Think about the waste of tax money on the New Deal, it set the Dems back 20 years. Damn you FDR, another 1%er just grifting us.

87. On 2017 Schedule B

 

Bernie reports an offshore account but declares he doesn't need to file FinCEN 114 ... which means he had less than $10,000 in foreign bank accounts.

WHY would Bernie need a foreign bank account? Where is it? He didn't have it in 2016 because he didn't file a Schedule B that year.

On the same form, he reports NO DIVIDENDS. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

and he didn't do it the normal way of exploiting workers, stealing lands or inheritance.

He wrote a book and offered it to be bought (or not) by readers.

He's a deplorable.




Harris is one of my top two choices and no, Bernie isn't the other one. Inslee is. But I can easily see ignoring my qualms about his age and pushing Bernie back up. He DOES have more a chance at the moment than Inslee. Sadly, because Inslee is focusing on climate first, which is my number one issue.

On the 2015 tax return, on form 8949, he shows capital gains by selling certain assets. The name of the asset has been redacted.

Why is it redacted? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

In any case, if he's paying his taxes fairly, there's literally no problem here. He wants to raise his own taxes, literally the opposite of what Trump wanted (and did).

Acknowledging a system that you have done well in is rigged, needs to be changed and fighting for that change is hypocritical would also believe that white people who marched for civil rights, men who marched for womenís suffrage and straight people who voted for gay marriage are also hypocritical. You would also have to believe FDR was the most hypocritical president in our history. Itís such a fucking dumb argument, I canít even believe Iím responding.

113. That is not the part that is hypocritical.

 

His whole position for years now is that money corrupts.

If he hadn't used his attack machine to go after actual Democratic Party candidates because they accept LEGAL donations from LEGAL corporations and LEGAL PAC's for the repeatedly stated opinion that the money corrupts, all while being a 1%er... there wouldn't be an issue.

We don't care, and never did, that the Clintons had a lot of money, and a lot of financial world ties. We believed in their substance of character to do the right thing for the American people, but BS and his surrogates used that as a club attack.

His own words, and actions makes him a very viable target, and worthy of the word hypocrite. Not the fact that he is a 1%er.

Who is he corrupted by? His supporters aka Progressive American people that bought his book? We should be so lucky that our politicians are in the pocket of the American people. If you have evidence that Goldman Sachs bought the books, them we can talk. Until then, you are just intentionally missing the point.

It bothered me more that the Russotrumpians hacked Podesta's email, the DNc's servers, and on and on, but I'm not happy about those banks, billionaires and PACs having more influence with our candidates than grass roots Dems. And when that kind of money is involved it's inevitable.

144. It's good that Sanders released his taxes.

 

And its 99% nothing burger after all the handwringing.

The rest of the Democratic field should follow his lead in sustaining his base, bypassing the punditry when warranted, speaking directly with passion, courting young voters, turning away corporate dollars, and putting people-first issues on the table.

He's sustaining a lot of support through these fundamentals, like it or not.

154. Bernie Sanders guide to accumulating wealth

 

(Iím borrowing from a riff on the Majority Report, and mine is not nearly as funny, btw)

#1 Move from the Bronx to Vermont because of all the opportunities there

#2 Move from job to job for over a decade

#3 Get elected as a mayor, then slowly move on to the US House and then finally the Senate

#4 Run for president and write a best selling book when youíre a grandfather


Letís look at intentions here.

Also, thereís a huge difference between policy and personal actions. Heís saying everyone should be taxed fairly. Heís not saying they should not make money.
