Listen to “The Buzz with Deneen Borelli” – my weekly podcast for Conservative Review.
Despite being a socialist and a long-time politician Bernie Sanders continues to be extremely popular with the Democrat base.
On a recent segment on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” the host Maria Bartiromo interviewed the founders of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream about their support for Sanders.
Ben and Jerry were not concerned with the extremely high tax rate of 92% mentioned by Sanders and they felt such a rate would not discourage entrepreneurs from starting new ventures.
Sanders also supports a $15 minimum wage and recent evidence from Seattle, Washington suggests the rising minimum wage in Seattle is responsible for employment losses in the city.
Finally, a young woman was fired from Yelp for publicly complaining about her inability to live on her minimum wage salary.
