Bernie Sanders wants to redistribute your money, but only donated 4% of AGI to charity in 2014


Via CNN:
Bernie and Jane Sanders earned nearly $206,000 in 2014 and paid about $28,000 in federal taxes, according to a tax return released by his campaign Friday night.
The return also shows that the couple earned nearly $46,000 in Social Security benefits.
Together, their total unadjusted gross earnings was $205,617. Most of the earnings came from Sanders’ $174,000 Senate salary, though Jane Sanders reported collecting $4,900 as a commissioner with the Texas Low Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Compact Commission.
The couple also reported donating $8,350 in gifts, though the seven-page return did not provide further detail.
