We’re just a couple of hours from hearing Bernie Sanders yell at us all again, this time from his podium on ABC News’ debate stage in Houston and flanked by both Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden. We all know that Wednesday was a day of remembrance, but one of the things that Sanders remembered was what it was like to live in a family that lived paycheck to paycheck.
Unlike Donald Trump, I know what it's like to be in a family that lives paycheck to paycheck.

And now look atcha. All grown up, making hundreds of thousands, sweet benefits and 3 homes. Oh, and not having to follow the same laws as the rest of us.

I worked from paycheck to paycheck for a very long time at minimum wage and lived a very simple life and turned out very well. For some reason this is a bad thing now. People now want the best of the best for free and @BernieSanders will push for it with socialism. No thanks.

I lived in Baltimore in the sixties so I know poverty. Living the American dream now and it's not because of socialism. Still not rich but happy, thanks to capitalism and hard work and taking responsibility for my actions, and not blaming others, you get what you put in

See, Bernie’s down with the working class.
If it wasn’t for Capitalism, you would not have been able to lift your way to millionaire status and have 3 homes!

That's why you have 3 houses and travel alot.
— leaper (@leaper99) September 12, 2019
Millionaires with 3 houses live paycheck to paycheck? Nah, and if you have it hasnt been for 60 years
— Dylan (@Dylan_Jacobsen) September 11, 2019
You have a $2.5+ million dollar net worth.

According to your brother during your childhood you never lacked for food or clothing but major purchases were not affordable.
If that is living paycheck to paycheck I guess as 1 of 5 children I lived that way too. Silly me, I thought it was just raising a family #VoteRED ❌

You've lived on the public dole YOUR ENTIRE LIFE. YOU wouldn't know how to make money by WORKING if your life depended on it. All YOU know is taking, screwing the taxpayers, lying about your wealth, and flying all over the planet on PRIVATE JETS.
YOU will never be PRESIDENT.
— ⚜ ChloeCat ⚜ (@Chloecat254) September 12, 2019
You also know how to be come a millionaire despite never having a real job, creating a product or service anyone wants or needs, creating a job or making a payroll.
You're a career grifter who's spent his life trying to redistribute the wealth of ppl who HAVE done those things.

Unlike Donald trump
You have never started/owned/operated a private company that provides paychecks to families

YOU are the 1%, bub

Maybe Sanders will treat us during the debate to stories of how poor he was growing up and all the jobs he worked to scrape by — and all the good-paying jobs he created along the way.
