Socialism? Why Not? These 2020 Dems Already Have Mountains of Cash

According to the Washington Examiner:

The 2020 Democratic field is running hard to the left as the Democratic Party celebrates socialism. But several of the candidates can well afford taking down capitalism at this point, because they’re already multimillionaires and have incomes in the top 1 percent. 

Former Reps. Beto O’Rourke and John Delaney, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper are among the wealthiest Democratic presidential candidates. Other hopefuls have earned hundreds of thousands of dollars in book royalties and speaking fees.  The former Texas representative co-founded an El Paso web and software company in the late ’90s, but much of his wealth comes from his wife Amy O’Rourke. She is the daughter of real estate tycoon Bill Sanders, who Forbes estimated is worth around $500 million. 

Warren, who proposed a wealth tax on households worth more than $50 million, reported in a Federal Election Commission financial disclosure filing that she and her husband have investment accounts and other financial assets worth between $4 million and $11 million. That doesn’t include her three-story Victorian home in Cambridge, Mass., valued at nearly $2 million in 2015.

  1. For most of us, life was easy when our parents provided all the necessities of our lives – food , clothing, shelter, medical care.
    But, we became adults and found that life isn’t easy, that necessities are hard to provide for everyone.
    Enter the Dems – Awww, don’t worry, the government will give you everything so long as we’re in charge here.
    It’s hard to step away from the freebies. Game the system is a way of life for millions of Americans and illegals, too.
