One insane thing Bernie Sanders’ said just came back to bite him and could destroy his campaign
Socialist Bernie Sanders can’t seem to open his mouth without saying something stupid.
That has consistently been a major problem in his campaign for President.
And one of the insane things he said just came back to bite him, and could destroy his campaign.
Bernie Sanders has never held a real job, or run a business.
But despite that fact, he thinks he knows how businesses should run, and wants to grow government so he can control them through government regulation.
A recent Tweet from Sanders shows this fact clear as day.
In response to Disney’s huge success with their latest Avengers movie, Sanders gave his unsolicited advice on what the company should do with that money.
“What would be truly heroic is if Disney used its profits from Avengers to pay all of its workers a middle-class wage, instead of paying its CEO Bob Iger $65.6 million – over 1,400 times as much as the average worker at Disney makes.”
He doesn’t understand that businesses aren’t like the government, and that they need to reinvest their profits to grow, which ultimately is better for everybody, including employees.
But a Senior Fellow with the National Taxpayers Union, Mattie Duppler, understands that, and obliterated Sanders while speaking to Fox & Friends.
Bernie Sanders has never seen a success story he doesn’t want to immediately dismantle,” Duppler said. “Disney employs over 200,000 people worldwide. Last year alone, Disney awarded $1,000 bonuses to over half its employees and expanded educational opportunities, investing back in that workforce.”
“Bernie wants to tell you big business is bad, but it’s because Disney has been so successful that it can generate this kind of profits year after year that it’s able to do that,” she said.
“The success today for a company helps pay for the growth tomorrow,” she said. “Politicians talk a lot about jobs, but these businesses are really just busy investing in people and the certainty they have to do that is because we have an environment where they’re finally able to make those investments in their workers rather than being concerned about half-baked ideas like this coming out of the government to tax them or take that revenue.
Duppler points out exactly what Sanders’ weakness would be if he does get the Democrat nomination to challenge Trump for president.
Trump understands how businesses work, having run countless successful companies of his own.
In any debate, Trump will be able to trounce Sanders on any issue related to the economy, because he actually knows what he’s talking about.
