Wealthiest U.S. Senator: I Don’t Believe Modern American Capitalism Is Working

Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) is reportedly worth over $243 million. And he has the gall to lecture us if it’s working?

 

While stumping in Virginia’s Fifth District for Democrat candidate Leslie Cockburn — who tried to accuse her Republican challenger, Denver Riggleman, of endorsing Big Foot Erotica — Virginia’s senior U.S. Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) had a rather interesting statement for campaigners. Warner — who is reportedly worth $200 million — said in 2018 free enterprise isn’t working.

 

Ironic coming from the wealthiest U.S. Senator in America, no? As of 2014, he was worth $243 million.

 

In a video gathered by RNC Research, Warner says the following about the economy.

 

“I think we ought to realize that the economy that we grew up in isn’t going to take place in 2017, 2018, 2019,” Warned said.

 

“I was blessed to do really well in business,” he added. “I believe in the free enterprise but I don’t believe modern American capitalism is working for enough people.”

 

The full conversation can be watched here:

Warner previously served as Governor of Virginia from 2002-2006 and billed myself as a moderate Democrat—even hiring a bluegrass band to sing his praises:

Senator Warner is no moderate. He votes mostly with Senator Chuck Schumer at a 84% rate. If he was “moderate” as governor, he must have rid his extremist views very well.

If he continues to make hypocritical statements like this, I hope a Republican can challenge him again when he’s up for re-election in 2020. In 2014, Warner was almost defeated by longtime GOP consultant Ed Gillespie—winning only by 0.8% points.

 

Free enterprise is the most uplifting system ever devised. The only reason why it doesn’t work is when Democrats and Republicans pollute and ruin it with cronyism and subsidies.
