Re: “Walters: Bernie Sanders Gets the Rock-Star Treatment

WAHRHEIT You are wrong about Bernie diving us because he teaches hate of the wealthy--He does not. What he despises is the system that allows the wealthy an unfair advantage to get ubedr wealthy at the expense of the rest of Americans. From the end of WWII to about the mid to late 1970's all Americans were doing pretty well financially. Corporations had asd high as a 90% TAX RATE (ALTHOUGH THEY DIDN'T PAY THAT MUCH), THE EMPLOYEES HAD UNIONS IN MANY CASES THAT KEPT WAGES IN LINE WITH WHAT THE CEO MADE. Political CONTRIBUTIONS WERE REGULATED AS WERE THE BANKS. A bank was either a commercial bank, or an investment bank, but not both. Once Glass-Stegall was totally repealed (thanks to both Republicans and Democrats, bank could invest in Risky trade practices with depositors money and when the bubble burst, the Banks got a bal out and thousands of Americans lost their jobs and homes. Bernie and Berniecrrats don't hate the wealthy, they just want a level playing field where they have an oipportunity to also gain from their hard work.
