On Tuesday, 7 millionaires and 1 billionaire stood in front of a panel of cheerleaders at the CNN and New York Times Democratic Party presidential debate and explained to their viewers how they plan to take from the rich, so they can give free stuff, like health care, education, and loan forgiveness to their voters.
So, who are these Democrat presidential candidates who bragged about their schemes to impose “wealth taxes” on rich Americans tonight? Well, most of them are in fact, multi-millionaires, and even one billionaire.
Senator Bernie Sanders, fresh off the heels of a heart attack, angrily ranted about Americans living paycheck to paycheck, railed against the wealthy, and assured Americans that socialist medicine would be so much better for Americans. Of course, after the cranky Socialist worth an estimated $2.5 million, leaves the stage tonight, he’ll be shuttling between his three homes in two different states.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, who has spent his entire life working as a politician, is worth an astounding $9 million. The money train doesn’t stop with Joe, his son Hunter Biden used his father’s position as Barack Obama’s vice president to enrich himself to the tune of $166,000/month, thanks to his position on the board of Ukraine energy company, Bursima Holdings.
Senator Elizabeth Warren’s net worth is an astounding $12 million. When she’s not lying about being fired for being pregnant, or about her Native American heritage, she can be found railing against capitalism.
The 6 million dollar Senator from California, Kamala Harris, once again, reverted to her best black dialect, as she talked about how Trump has “openly” committed crimes, with no actual evidence of her claims.
Billionaire Tom Steyer, who made his first appearance on the stage, didn’t have much to say, so instead of talking about issues, he used his time to call President Trump a “criminal” and to pat his wildly wealthy fellow Democrats on the backs for their quality character.
Beto O’Rourke, whose estimated fortune is hovering around $4 million (thanks to marrying a wealthy wife with a large inheritance), is almost singularly focused on stealing money from Americans to pay for his phony man-made climate change scheme.
Here is a visual of Presidential candidates provided by Forbes, that shows the net worth of each individual.
Everyone knows Donald Trump is rich. But how about the 25 people jockeying to replace him as president? Forbes dug into the details—examining financial disclosure statements, scouring local real estate records and calculating pension benefits—to figure out the finances of the 2020 candidates.
There were some surprises. Bernie is a millionaire. So is “middle-class Joe” Biden. Elizabeth Warren is richer than both of them, worth an estimated $12 million. But she’s a long way from John Delaney, whose $200 million fortune makes him twice as wealthy as every other Democratic candidate not named Tom Steyer. The hedge fund tycoon, who announced his candidacy on July 2019, is worth an estimated $1.6 billion.
