Billionaires for Bernie
The rich long ago figured out how to profit from socialism. Why do you think FDR, JFK and Jay Rockefeller supported bigger and bigger government?
And so George Soros (worth $9 billion before Obama's presidency began, $24 billion today) indulges in this luxury. And this year Soros is underwriting large chunks of the campaign of that young man Bernie Sanders.
From Cliff Kincaid: "Soros isn’t the only billionaire financing groups or causes that Sanders believes in. Others include billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer, billionaire gay activist Tim Gill, and billionaire anti-Second Amendment advocate Michael Bloomberg."
Warren Buffett has supported Democrats for eons. Bill Gates too. And Carlos Slim covers the debts of the New York Times. They are the three richest men in the world.
