The New Socialism? Bernie Sanders Made Nearly $1 Million Last Year

Vermont Senator and former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders made almost one million dollars from his book “Our Revolution,” The Daily Caller reports.

The self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist received $795,000 in 2016 from MacMillan publishers, while also receiving $63,750 in royalty payments. This combined with an additional $200,000 per year income puts him in the top 4 percent of American income.

Although his income is below average for the annual income for senators, Sanders owns three homes, including a $600,000 four-bedroom home at Lake Champlain.

Quite the life for someone who claims to represent middle class Americans.
