He's also 78 years old. My 60 something parents have two houses and they're middle class at best. Compound interest and a steady (higher than average) income is neat.

I’d love his summer “camp”

Moderators don’t seem to like Amy. The fix is in. 

They hated Tulsi, too.  They are probably get paid off by Hillary to be mean to all of the female candidates, that way Hillary doesn't live to see a woman not her become president.

I have no problem with wealth or prosperity.  Neither does Bernie when its his own apparently.  He should have sold the stupid 3rd house when he knew he was running, its a terrible look. The two houses are realistically justified but how man Americans own multiple properties.

Guys, I don't know if the people on the stage were paying attention during Impeachment, but going after Mitch McConell is a losing game.

Donald Trump has never been closer to re-election than he is at this minute. The Democrats are willing to jump off the socialist cliff with Bernie Sanders.

Trump is going to get re-elected.  We may get some entertainment in the meantime though.

Mayor Pete may be the best hope of everyone on that stage but being gay is going to be major baggage in the general.

Sanders is going to get the nom anyway and his ticket is a loser vs Trump

Sure. 

Bernie's net worth according to Google is 2.5 million.  He could give away his money and extra houses.  He could live like someone that makes 60K.  But he likes it a little better.  So where do we draw the line?  You can have millions but not billions?  Is it 10's of millioins?  Somewhere above what he makes, I'm sure.

Unfortunately he has a cult following that is going to give Trump another 4 years.

There is such an enormous difference between a million and a billion...completely disingenuous by Bloomberg.

A problem I have with multi-billionaires is the timing and luck involved, and how many of their companies would have precluded them from success had they not come along first. This doesn’t negate the work and intelligence involved, but it should also mitigate how much gets consolidated versus re-sewn.

It really is. The basic idea behind it led to our only 4 term President.

The winners tonight are Trump and another billionaire that got murdered in the first hour.  

There MAY be one other winner tonight. Joe Biden. If he can win South Carolina he could regain a lot of the support he lost to Bloomberg.

 Don’t think being gay would sink him. Almost everyone who would make that a defining issues is already solidly voting Trump.

I doubt you'll find many Sanders fans that think millionaires shouldn't exist. Hell, his many Silicon Valley worker donors basically need to be a millionaire to ever think of buying a house.

Pete did the old pro wrestling, fake handshake move to Bernie. Extend the hand then pull it back at the last minute and kick the guy right in the nuts.

Honestly the only viable ones up there are Pete and Amy. The rest are too old or desperate or crazy.

Surprised no one has coached Biden by now to take his time, don’t be so self-aware and rushed, and go on tangents. Answer calmly. Take your time. Don’t make apologies. Stay on task. Comes off dottering.

You're still never going to convince those people that Bernie is some secret crony capitalist or something. It's a dumb thing to challenge him on.

The average salary in America is 56K, thats a pretty big divide to the millionaire class.  Which look, I don't begrudge anyone for making money, its what makes this country great.  We talk often about wealth inequality, we are in the top 10 percent of the globe, I wonder if these people making 30K who are in top 5 percent globally are willing to share the pie.  

Bernie has made this an issue, and look, he's running for president, rent the damn lake house.  A 600k summer "camp" is an atrocious optic

Why does Sophia Vergara keep asking Klobuchar questions, you can tell she can barely understand what she’s saying.
