Bernie Sanders made one insane proposal that will empty every American’s bank account

Mar 21, 2024

Senator Bernie Sanders may have failed in his quest to become President.

But that doesn’t mean Sanders gave up on his quest to turn America into a Socialist nation.

And Bernie Sanders made one insane proposal that will empty every American’s bank account.

Bernie spars with Fox News reporter over proposed 32-hour work week

Bernie Sanders’ latest hairbrained scheme is a proposal to impose a 32-hour work week on America.

Sanders introduced this socialist takeover of American business practices in conjunction with Democrat Senator Laphonza Butler of California.

Fox News Business reporter Hillary Vaughn confronted Sanders about his war on American businesses, saying Democrats want to raise taxes, mandate employers raise wages, and cut the number of hours in a work week.

Sanders proceeded to fly off the handle, falsely claiming Republicans imposed trickle-down economics on the country that only benefited the wealthy.

“Ok, thank you. You wanna — hold it, Ok. We held a hearing on a 32-hour work week because what we have seen is that over the last 50 years, despite a huge increase in worker productivity, almost all of the wealth has gone to the top 1% while 60% of the people living paycheck to paycheck. Many of our people are exhausted. We work longest hours of any people in the industrialized world. I think it is time for a shortened work week,” Sanders declared.

Sanders can’t answer obvious questions 

Vaughn pressed Sanders on how this scheme, where businesses are required to pay workers the same salary for a 32-hour work week as they did for a 40-hour work week, wouldn’t bankrupt businesses.

“Let me ask you a question about that. Seems like Democrats want businesses to be taxed more, pay their workers more, lower prices, and now pay people not to work,” Vaughn asked.

“Really? That’s not my assumption. I don’t think so. You know what Democrats — you know what I would like to see?” Sanders shot back.

But Vaughn stood her ground.

In addition to the tax increases Sanders proposed, he was now demanding businesses also cut back on revenue by being open four days a week instead of five, while raising their costs through increased employee compensation.

“How are businesses going to survive that? That’s the question. How can businesses survive that? How can businesses survive all of those proposals?” Vaugh followed up.

Sanders then uncorked one of his usual lines about how the rich don’t pay their fair share of taxes.

“When Mr. Bezos pays an effective tax rate lower than the average worker, I think we have a real problem in our tax system. I think that billionaires have got to start paying their fair share of taxes. Thank you,” Sanders concluded.

There is a reason the Soviet Union collapsed, and socialism has never worked anywhere it has been tried.

And that is — the laws of supply and demand are ironclad.

But socialists like Sanders refuse to live in the real world and instead continue to try and impose their failed ideology on the rest of the world.
