Sanders has entered millionaire class, tax returns show

As the Democratic race for president cranks up its moving parts could cause real angst | John Baer

Sanders said that his newer returns will show that he is a millionaire thanks to book sales.

Senator Kamala Harris yesterday released 15 years of tax returns, which showed that she and her husband earned about US$1.9 million in adjusted gross income in 2018. Sanders' campaign said in a news release that he paid 26% effective tax rate in 2018.

Bernie Sanders' performance at a Fox News-hosted town hall Monday night is being touted by his supporters as evidence that the 77-year-old democratic socialist has the ability to pierce the "Fox News bubble".

At the televised meeting, Mr Sanders said he would not apologise for his recent wealth. "So, would you be willing to pay 52 percent on the money that you made?"

Eighteen Democrats are now vying to win the party's nomination to challenge Trump in November 2020. With her increased appearances on the right-leaning network in the past month, however, it does make one wonder how the president, who is said to watch Fox News daily, is just now taking notice of Brazile.

Pressed by anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum as to why he was holding onto his wealth rather than refusing deductions or writing a check to the Treasury Department, Sanders began laughing dismissively and, in an apparent non sequitur, asked why MacCallum didn't donate her salary.

Up against criticism that, like Trump, Sanders was not being transparent, the senator said he was going to release them on Tax Day and urged the president to do the same. "Please do the same".

Sanders - who has railed against the top 1 percent of earners - is among the top 1 percent income bracket in the country, according to his tax filings.

President Donald Trump did not release any of his tax returns during the campaign and has yet to show any signs he will do so ahead of the 2020 election. According to the liberal-leaning Economic Policy Institute, families in the United States earning $421,926 or more a year are part of this group.

Taxes paid: $697,611, or 37%.

Asked whether his plans bring big price tags that would drive up the national debt, the Democratic presidential contender scoffed at the suggestion, saying his plans for more taxes on the wealthy and the biggest multinational corporations would cover the costs of his ideas.

As a senator, Sanders has been required to release a financial disclosure statement, but the information in that is much more limited than the data in a tax return. Clinton, by contrast, released 8 years worth of complete returns. More than $2.1 million came from Texans who wrote checks of $200 or more.

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