Bernie Sanders (I-VT) addresses the Pennsylvania Association of Staff Nurses and Allied Professionals at the Mohegan Sun Pocono on April 15, 2019 in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania.
Pressed by anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum as to why he was holding onto his wealth rather than refusing deductions or writing a check to the Treasury Department, Sanders began laughing dismissively and, in an apparent non sequitur, asked why MacCallum didn't donate her salary. His Senate disclosure form also showed royalty payments from "We Shall Overcome", a folk album that included Sanders on their cassette tape.
"I guess the president watches your network a little bit, right?" "That is absurd", Sanders said, as MacCallum said he wasn't answering her question. Years ago my wife was a president of a college. "Families in the USA earning $421,926 or more a year are part of this group".
Sanders said that: "These tax returns show that our family has been fortunate. I consider paying more in taxes as my income rose to be both an obligation and an investment in our country". He also conceded that vague promises from Sanders and the campaign about their plans had contributed to the speculation. By 2018, his wife, 69, was also taking Social Security, providing the couple with almost $52,000 for the year. The senator, who routinely rails against "millionaires and billionaires" and the "rigged" economic system that protects their standing, saw his income spike on royalties from sales of his book, "Our Revolution", published shortly after his 2016 race for the Democratic nomination. At a campaign stop in Gary, Indiana, a reporter asked Sanders whether his millionaire status was at odds with his populist economic message.

With three days in between Games 2 and 3, it potentially provides a timeline on when the Lakers will hire their next head coach. He's been at the center of fans' boos in the past while he was still playing with the Timberwolves after demanding a trade.
Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, march during a protest in downtown Phildelphia on July 24, 2016, ahead of the Democratic National Convention there. The senator and her husband, Douglas Emhoff, a lawyer, reported an adjusted gross income of about $1.9 million in 2018, substantially more than the $142,000 Harris declared in 2004 when she was the district attorney of San Francisco.
Sanders and his wife disclosed $36,300 in charitable contributions in 2017, but their return does not detail each individual contribution. Sanders and his wife put the institute on hiatus last month amid criticism that the nonprofit blurred lines between family, fundraising and campaigning.
Several in the growing field of Democratic 2020 contenders, including Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar, Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, and Governor Jay Inslee of Washington, have released their 2018 returns in recent weeks.
Warren released 10 years of her tax returns last year and followed with an 11th year of released returns last week. The tax returns are from 2009 to 2018.
"I didn't suggest a wealth tax", MacCallum said. "This clearly is not the tax return of someone who does either a lot of tax planning or complex investing".
