    Bernie Sanders pushed the income for taxing the rich above his income. About Mike Rowe s comment about Ronald Reagan, he left acting because the rolls dried up. He used his radio experience in radio and acting and realized he could do well in politics starting with the politics of the film industry.

  • Democraps are this nations #1 problem. Above everything else, nothing comes even a billion light years close to the insane amount of damage and problems that are caused by the Democrap party

  • Why can't taxes all be the same percentage across the board. Like say everyone pays 20% in taxes that would be fair. Now I would prefer to not have to pay taxes. The government really doesn't have any right to my money they do anything to earn it.

  • David Schneider says:

    Jesus loves the rich just like Republicans do. We should be good christians and allow them to be tax free just as the bibul says.

  • Everybody gets a $50hr job for 20 hours a month, carrying a brick from one end of town to the other, or you can push a stroller with your children, if your a single mother you can work 40 hr, no more free money

  • Laurie Urbanoski says:

    The poles are a joke. Look at what people are doing. Those are the pole we need to look at. Those are the poles that are not rigged.

  • what ever increases the government hands out to the middle class and poor the insurance company's and pharma company's take it right away as soon as they announce it /we see NO raises ….

  • Don't raise taxes, just tax the wealth. OK so then what do you do when all the wealth is gone? Oh right… all the other taxes stupid! 20% sales tax and $6 gasoline like Europe sound good to you? That's just the tip of the iceberg.

  • Christian Paulson says:

    I've had two jobs forever as an educator. Even when I was a school principal and made 6 figures, I had to watch my money. If I decided to go from teaching at $40k being taxed at 28% to being a school principal at $70k but at a 50% tax rate, why would I put up with the headaches for less money?

  • The median income in the US is $33K that is $15 per hr – that means half of US EARNERS makes less than that. The USA land of opportunity is much as a lie as USA land of freedom justice and democracy. The swamp is deep. Can Trump fix this in the next 5 years?

  • Trump never paid any taxes, and filed bankruptcy four times . got his money from his fathers business which he drove into the ground and threw tax payers money ,got him started again by never paying the contractors and the hard working people for the trump hotels!! Your god is a fake!! Wake up before your children have nothing .. This guy is not the answer!! And shame on you!! you have to no that in your heart , he is a crook and a nut!!

  • Mike also has his own scholarship program for trade schools. He is doing what this country allows fine entrepreneurs to do. Help other people up without giving them handouts.

  • The real rub with Sanders. When the campaigning started in late 2015. Bernie's net worth was $330,000. Just after the primaries. He and his wife purchased a $660,000 home IN CASH ! And this was prior to his book deals. Kind of hard to do on a $164,000 salary. And no stock portfolio. Things that make you go hmmmm.

  • Love mike ,He’s right ! Bernie is a want to be, warren is a huge lier! She’ll say and do anything to get what she wants. I personally know that the struggle to get into a Ivy League school is one of the hardest things our children do ! Then these wannabe people cheat our children out of there hard work . Changing there future for ever . It’s all about truth ,

  • Warren said "we need a wealth tax to make investments in our next generation" I will paraphrase – "We need to raise taxes on rich people so people who don't pay taxes, can continue to not pay taxes"

  • Right tax the rich ??? Problem how to catch the money the rich move money with a phone call so Demoshits,Bernie,Warren says grab the cash poof it's gone place to place accounts open close in a blink of an eye !!! So here's the nasty fact the rich ain't rich by being STUPID


  • The illuminutti print your money with nothing backing it and charge you interest for the privilage. Those guys are the richest guys.

  • Come on Bernie, 97.5% isn’t realistic. You can’t beat Trump with this kind of ideology. The Democratic Party is has irretrievably broken down.

  • Doesn't Bernie realise that those top tenth of one percent not only have a big positive influence over US (and world) capitalist prosperity, but if someone like Sanders becomes President, those people will just leave the US. they will probably live out the rest of their lives in Monaco or somewhere similar and then Bernie will find out what happens when socialists run out of other people's money.

  • Dose anyone understand.
    (Trickle down Economics ?)
    We Force a business owner to pay $15.00 per hour and that $3.00 dollar burger just went to a $10.00 dollar sandwich.!

  • Bernie wasn't talking about himself. He's not part of the top tenth of 1% or .001% He was talking about the few Billionaires there are, and is going to steal most of their money to pay for all of the people who don't want to work's FREE STUFF.

  • It's me K In SD says:

    I agree..I'm a conservative but I have a slightly disabled son that can get hired in San Diego..he has a clean background…something is wrong…

  • Bernie doesn’t budge nor smooth it over.
    He’s a real socialist.
    Un American ideals.

  • William Ferrier says:

    Bernie needs to put his money where his mouth is and lead by example because he's extremely wealthy and he could use a couple of his homes to support people that are underprivileged I want him to lead by example

  • If you give away 1000 dollars to people who do not want to work then isnt it unfair to workers who have to work to make that 1000 dollars? Or do you plan on giving them a 1000 dollars too? And if you do wouldnt they just take a few days off and not work either? The dems, drowning in hatred and ignorance.

  • Redwing Blackbird says:

    If people cant move up in society due to background records, lack of opportunity, or affordable education,  Of course they will take free money why wouldn't they? They have already been kicked out of social circles, and the economy at large, and mocked for their poverty for quite a long time. Don't see that changing much, to much resistance.   How many outcasts does America want, they already got 1/3rd the country.
    Democrats offer money and Trump offers Jobs.  Who will win i wonder.

  • 8 steps to topple a nation and create a socialist state

    1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people

    2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

    3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

    4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

    5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).

    6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in school.

    7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

    8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

  • Problem with his logic. The ones that dont have to pay the 97.5% will finally have chance to create. These people need to QUIT and STOP protecting the billionaries that got their wealth from commit crimes DAILY and destorying competiton through monopoloy. Income inequality is a huge issue, we need to face it head on. We tried giving tax brakes to the fortune 500, what did they do? yep buy their own stock…. thats enough.

  • Southern Texas Homestead says:

    Beware of governments & politicians promising to give away money, housing, food, medical services and free education all in exchange for giving up your rights & freedoms. That is not realistic. They can not deliver. Where do you think the money is going to come from? If you buy into their lies you will end up paying for it with your life. Ask the people in Venezuela, China, Hong Kong, any Communist country. Don't believe the propaganda.

  • Mike Rowe is like a good bottle of wine. Mike, why in God’s good earth are you living in the hellhole that has become California? Move to Florida ASAP! No state taxes and we have a wonderful Republican Governor that keeps making Florida greater.

  • Mike, I now know why you have always been one of my FAVORITE PEOPLE. You make so much sense in a place where sense has flown out the window. Thank you.

  • Want to know why there's a special group of people having such a large amount of wealth?
    It's because of people like Sanders.

    I mean after all they were the ones that doctor the financial books, create all sorts of excuses to carry larger debts, with an extended period of payment time, instead of paying debts off reasonably they have become worse than drug addicts when it comes to spending, thus ultimately have allowed a run away inflation.


  • JOHN B. RAMIREZ says:

    Beware of Democratic campaign promises, they will dig deeper into your pocketbook and fill their own pockets with your taxes and spend your tax dollars as they please with no accountability to the American people.

  • JOHN B. RAMIREZ says:

    Rich elite Democrats don't give a dam when 20 u.s. military veterans are committing suicide daily .
    Ask Democratic house speaker Nancy Pelosi where did she get over 400million dollars in her own posession while serving the Democratic party and also ask Nancy Pelosi where did billions of u.s. dollars come up unaccountable, missing and disappeared while she is serving the American people. And the crisis at the u.s. southern border is a calculated assault on hard working Americans worker's pay checks deduction to pay for illegal immigrants and socialism in America. American , taxpayers, don't you think the Democratic party are indorcing criminal behavior and should be fine and arrested. Sanctuary cities indorce criminal Democratic party
    allowing 17 million undocumented illegal immigrants to meddle in American politics and elections is treason against American citizens an attempt to overthrow American sovereignty, security and government.
    Don't you think that is criminal and an act of treason against American citizens and should be the job of the national guard to probe illegal documents from Mexico and undocumented illegal immigrants in America.

  • JOHN B. RAMIREZ says:

    The United states of America to reinstate the u.s. communist control act of 1954 and remove those communist insurgents out of American government.

  • JOHN B. RAMIREZ says:

    The American national guard to arrest any business employees, schools teachers, public or state job employees or organizations that are in violation of the u.s. code law 1324 and 1325 heavy fines and arrest and long term probation. Too stop the calculated assault on hard working Americans worker's pay checks deduction to pay for illegal immigrants and socialism in America indorced by the criminal Democratic party.

  • Oh yeah a whole 1000 dollars? I can pay my rent on time for once. Smh…I'm gonna be rich of this..maybe be able to get my head above water for a min and breathe.

  • If a gun grabbing democrat becomes president you can expect a serious uptic in the current pace of Civil War 2.0 against the federal government.
