Socialist public servant rakes in over $1 million for 2nd straight year (4th home, here he comes!)

There’s good money in public-sector anti-capitalist activism.

I hear Bernie might have his sights set on a 4th home, and at this rate, the semi-dedicated socialist might just get there:

For the second year in a row, Sen. Bernie Sanders’ income topped seven figures.

A recent financial disclosure report shows the junior Vermont senator made nearly $1.06 million in 2017. Most of his income — $885,767 — came from advances and royalties, according to the report filed in May.

Sanders earned $174,000 for his service in the Senate.

The senator hit the $1 million mark for the first time in 2016. Most of his income came from a book deal “Our Revolution,” which came out after his failed bid for the Democratic nomination for president.

There’s good money in anti-capitalist public sector activism if you know how to play the game!

Congratulations, Sen. Sanders! If you get a chance, let us middle class capitalists know what it’s like to be a wealthy socialist.
