Bernie Sanders’ campaign escalates feud with top liberal think tank

In the Vermont senator's 2018 return, he and his wife, Jane Sanders, earned more than $550,000, including $133,000 income from his Senate salary and $391,000 in book sales.

He called a tax system that has let large corporations such as Amazon and Netflix pay little or no taxes "a disgrace".

After years of earning less than $300,000, Sanders' income shot up to $1,073,333 in 2016, mostly on the sale of his best-selling book Our Revolution.

Sanders has become wealthier, in part, by cashing in on his status as a presidential candidate.

But in a statement released with his tax returns, Sanders welcomed paying more in taxes as his income increased.

"You're talking to the wrong guy", Sanders said in an hour-long event aired on the network that is the president's favorite news outlet.

Elizabeth Warren will be the third 2020 presidential candidate to visit Colorado in recent days when she makes a campaign stop in Aurora for a town-hall style discussion Tuesday evening.

Though Sanders is not the only millionaire in the group - Sen. "So, would you be willing to pay 52 percent on the money that you made?"

In a recent op-ed, he outlined his now-familiar promise to take on the "powerful special interests" stemming from "the greed of Wall Street, the power of enormous multinational corporations and the influence of the global billionaire class". By 2018, his wife, 69, was also taking Social Security, providing the couple with almost $52,000 for the year.

Governor Jay Inslee of Washington released 12 years of tax returns, showing that he and his wife earned US$202,912 last year.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

U.S. Senators Cory Booker, of New Jersey, and Kirsten Gillibrand, of NY, each raised about 16 percent of their cash from small-dollar donors. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota released 12 years of tax returns through 2017 earlier this month.

"Democratic socialism to me is creating a government and an economy and a society that works for all rather than the top 1 percent", he said. Most other Democratic contenders have pledged to do the same soon. To see older returns, visit his campaign's website.

Sen. Bernie Sanders used tax day Monday to release his returns for the past decade. Clinton, by contrast, released 8 years worth of complete returns. Other outlets, from the New York Times to Fox News itself, focused on his tax returns and took a decidedly negative tone within a neutral framework, but across the Internet the reaction was nearly unanimously positive, even if that positivity was occasionally grudging.

Approximately the same number of people, many of them cheering loudly, raised a hand again, apparently surprising Baier, who added, "There's 180 million people on private insurance, and they would be lost, right?"

In its report on the event, Fox News also draws attention to the audience's response to the question.

We've provided two screenshots from the 2014 tax return below. At least two viewers fell into that category: Trump and Hannity.
