Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders was seen flying First Class this week as he traveled to speak alongside fellow far-left candidate Summer Lee.
From Fox News:
A Sanders spokesperson didn’t return Fox News Digital’s requests for comment.
The Vermont senator endorsed Lee for the vacating congressional seat last week and spoke at her Pittsburgh rally on Thursday alongside Steel City Mayor Ed Gainey.
“We have a working class, a middle class, in this country who are struggling and it’s absolutely imperative we get (people) into Congress who are prepared to stand up and take on powerful special interest and fight for working families,” Sanders told local Pittsburgh publication Action News 4. “Summer is one of those people who will do that.”
“I’ve known Summer for a number of years and Summer believes as I do, that it is totally absurd that you have billionaires in this country, some of the very richest people paying nothing, not a penny in federal income tax,” the millionaire senator continued. “(All) because you have a rigged tax system that favors the wealthy and large corporations.”
