Very interesting facts as I knew nothing about this candidate. He sounds more like the average Joe than the rest of the ones running.

I know enough about Bernie to know that this man knows nothing about economics.

It shows that money isn't everything to Sanders. He cares about people more than money, I think.

Most of these I've already heard before from multiple media outlets, however, it doesn't make me like him anymore. Dude rubs me the wrong way.

An interesting article that gives more insight on Bernie's finances than the media has given to date.

Sanders is more of an "average" person than any other candidates. Sure he has some questionable choices in his past but he would be the best for America

I'd love to see this kind of insight on the other candidates as well. It does paint him as more down to earth, but his financial policies show a complete ignorance of economics.

I have heard many of these facts due to following the internet. But his income compared to everyone else is still so surprising to me. Makes him seem more like one of "us"
