Bernie Sanders joins the 1%?

Let’s put this in perspective: First, as the article says, based on his annual income of $200,000, Sanders still is one of the least wealthy Senators. And it matters more what you DO with your wealth—and your political power—than how much of it you have. Second, this is a one-off, as far as I can tell: Sanders doesn’t get six-figure book deals every year, so his income average, year after year, is below the “1% threshold.” Finally, Sanders has been known to donate excess income from book sales. You can’t say that of many millionaires. (Originally posted 6/8/2017)
