Question…Who is more greedy the Koch brothers or people like Bernie sanders who seek to spend this nation into oblivion? Bernie is not rich but he is well off and I would venture to say more wealthy than many of us. The Koch brothers on the other hand are without a doubt rich but are they greedy? They employ thousands of Americans, they donate vast sums of money to all kinds of worthy causes and they have been known to donate to both sides of the political aisle. So is it greed or are they simply wealthy Americans who have made the American dream part of their reality? Heres the story
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders is making the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch the face of a “corrupted” political and economic system that the Vermont senator wants to upend.
Sanders delighted a South Carolina rally of more than 3,000 people Saturday with his assertions that the Kochs and other “greedy” billionaires are destroying American democracy by infusing huge sums of cash into campaigns and election.
The Vermont senator, who is pushing former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton from the left, called for publicly financed elections that would allow “anyone” to seek public office without “begging from billionaires.”
And he pledged that his nominees to the Supreme Court would have to promise themselves that they would try to overturn the Citizens United decision that allows corporations, unions and wealthy individuals to spend unlimited sums in campaigns.
“We live in a nation in which a handful of very, very wealthy people have extraordinary power over our economy and our political life and the media,” Sanders told the boisterous crowd at a convention center near Charleston.
Bernie is a self proclaimed socialist which means he likes to spend money other people worked hard for.we already have one of those guys in the white house now and we are flat broke borrowing money from China of all countries. If elected Bernie would happily spend the Koch brothers money as well so who is more greedy Who wants to finance this country on the backs of people who have worked hard to become successful? Not to mention that I am damn sure they have donated far more money to hospitals and many other worthy causes than Mr. Sanders would believe. Well maybe not because Bernie knows the good they have done with their success it is just easier for him to beat up on them because right now the left in this country is engaged in a full on attack on SUCCESS. Aren’t we raised with the hope that someday while becoming a good person we also hope to find success? Don’t buy into this anti success mantra from the left because they don’t even believe it. Look at Hillary and her millions upon millions of net worth and she has the nerve to preach about income inequality. The left likes to pit people against success and I believe it is because they want to run the show and have you and I begging to them for the things we need in life. Bernie will attack wealth, Hillary will too which exposes the left for their hypocritical stance on success. I really hate to see successful people labeled as greedy and most of the people doing this labeling seem to leave out people like George Soros, or Warren buffet, etc.Why because those guys fall in line with the liberal left Its a sham and don’t be fooled Wealth is fine and so is success its part of what makes America great, anybody can become a success.
